Kemirembe underwent a cesarean delivery.

Kemirembe had a successful caesarean section. She delivered a healthy baby girl weighing 3.3kgs. The baby has a good appetite and both mom and baby are doing well.

Kemirembe says, “I thank you so much because this is like a miracle in my life. I was fearful that I would not be able to cover the cost of this surgery. I will resume with farming after recovering from the surgery.”

Kemirembe lost both her parents and was raised by her stepmother. She has two siblings, both are married and earn a living through small-scale farming. Kemirembe and her husband are also small-scale farmers who mostly grow sugarcane and tomatoes.

Kemirembe has two children and is expecting her third. She delivered her previous two via cesarean and now needs to deliver her third via cesarean as well. This will help avoid complications like uterine rupture, fetal distress or possibly maternal death. Fortunately our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, can help. Kemirembe will undergo surgery on July 7th. She needs your help to fund this $252 surgery.

Kemirembe shared, “I hope to deliver a healthy baby and to regain my health once again after surgery so I can continue farming.”

Herrieth

Herrieth is a one-month-old beautiful girl and the firstborn to her young parents who recently graduated from college. Herrieth’s father graduated as a clinical officer, while her mother graduated as a nurse. Unfortunately, both parents have not been able to get an employment opportunity yet. They now help each other make a living through a small business of selling fish in order to be able to raise and take care of their baby. Herrieth was born with a bilateral clubfoot, which her parents were informed is treatable, but due to financial challenges they couldn’t afford the treatment cost. If not treated, Harrieth will not be able to walk properly as she develops and her chances of growing up with disability will be very high. Her parents got to know about Watsi's medical partner and the possibility for their daughter to have her feet corrected, thus they are asking for help. Fortunately, Herrieth's family traveled to visit our medical partner's care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre and The Plaster House. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on January 12th and provide critical follow-up care. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $935 to fund Herrieth's clubfoot repair. After treatment, as she grows older, she will be able to walk easily, run, and play. Herrieth’s mother says: “We would love to see our daughter lead a normal life without the challenges that come along with being disabled. Please help her.”
