Kobusingye is a farmer from Uganda. Kyobusingye is a widow and a mother to four children; three girls who are all married and a son who is still in school but is also a small-scale farmer. She has been able to school send all of her children to school on her own by farming. She mostly grows food crops to feed her family but sells the surplus for essential needs and to pay school fees for her son.
Three years ago Kobusingye began experiencing severe lower abdominal pain with persistent vaginal bleeding. She has been diagnosed with a premalignant cervical lesion. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Kobusingye’s surgery. On July 7th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Kobusingye will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Kobusingye shared, “I hope to get better quality of health after surgery so I can continue with farming to educate my son for a brighter future.”
