Barbrah, who is 32 years old, lives with her husband and two children in rural Uganda. Due to the lengthy and untimely illness of her father, Barbrah had to leave school after completing grade seven. When she was 23, she married, and opened up a small business that yields minimal returns. To supplement her income, she also engages in farming, while her husband works in the motorcycle taxi business.
Barbrah has a history of difficult pregnancies, including two miscarriages. She is currently expecting another child, and her doctors have recommended that she deliver via a Caesarean section, as this is how she was able to successfully deliver her first two children. Because of the scarring from these two earlier procedures, a C-section is the best way for the doctors to ensure the safety of both Barbrah and the baby.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Barbrah undergo a C-section on August 8th, at Karoli Lwanga Hospital, Nyakibale. This procedure will cost $252, and Barbrah needs your support to raise the required funds.
Barbrah says: “I surely believe that I will be able to deliver so well if given your support, because the hospital bill is what I worry about most.”
