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.”
