Allen is pregnant with twins, nine months after delivering her first child via C-section. Allen and her husband both work as farmers. Allen grows vegetables, potatoes, rice, maize, and other crops.

Allen visited our medical partner’s hospital, Bwindi Community Hospital, where doctors consider her pregnancy to be high-risk. It is highly likely that Allen will require another C-section with this pregnancy. They recommend that she receive medical attention before, during, and after labor to ensure a safe delivery. On September 28, she will begin to receive supplements and attend antenatal checkups and health education classes. She will deliver her baby in the hospital, and she will undergo a C-section if necessary. After birth, Allen and her baby will be monitored by the hospital staff.

Though Allen and her husband are paying $7 for her treatment, they need help to pay her remaining medical bill. Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is requesting $241 to fund antenatal visits, lab tests, medication, and three nights of hospital stay.

“I would like to share my gratitude for the support of my delivery,” says Allen. “I thank all the donors for their support and pray that God blesses them.”

Aidah

Aidah is a small-scale farmer and a mother of six. Aidah's husband works around their village getting daily jobs as much as he can. They own a four-room semi-permanent house for shelter. Aidah's first born is now 38 years old and married, and her youngest is 18 years old and close to completing school. Aidah and her family have received aid from a church fund to help meet their daily needs. Since October 2021, Aidah has been experiencing lower abdominal pains. She was initially treated for gastric ulcers and typhoid, but there was no significant improvement. Aidah later developed further complications and rushed to a doctor who did tests and ultimately recommended a surgery that Aidah could not afford. This condition has prevented Aidah from working on her farm. Aidah traveled to our medical partner's care center, Rushoroza Hospital, and has been diagnosed with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. If not treated, Aidah risks developing cancer of the cervix that could affect her life in the long run. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $319 to fund Aidah's surgery. On June 7th, Aidah will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center. Once recovered, Aidah will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Aidah shared, “I pray for a successful surgery so that I may live a normal life once again. I hope to resume farming in order to continue taking good care of my family.”
