Jennifer underwent a safe c-section delivery and welcomed a baby girl.

Jennifer had a successful surgery delivering a healthy baby girl weighing 3.7 kgs. They had a smooth stay at the hospital and are now both back home. She was so grateful for the support offered.

Jennifer says: “I have now regained strength and feel like I can start digging. I hope to resume farming as it’s the only source of my survival.”

Jennifer is a mother of four children who are all in school. Jennifer and her husband grow tomatoes, cabbage, and carrots to sell and earn a living; they are small-scale farmers.

Jennifer is expecting a baby. She previously lost one of her children a week after delivery and a second one during delivery, so this is a hopefully yet worrisome time for her family. During the pregnancy, Jennifer has been attending antenatal care visits in a nearby healthcare facility. In one of the visits, the doctor recommended a caesarian section to ensure that her delivery is safe. However, she is not financially able to finance the surgery and is seeking for financial assistance.

Jennifer says,”With your help, I will get the surgery and go back to farming and taking care of my family. That will be a blessing.”

Aziza

Aziza is 14-year-old girl and the second born child in a family of three children. She has just completed her class seven exams and looks forward to joining secondary school once the national examination results are out. She would love to be a teacher when she grows up. Aziza was involved in a fire accident when she was just three years old and she had not been able to use her left hand to hold things or be able to participate in many home chores. Aziza had surgery in February 2020 to release the burn contracture on her hand, which went a long way to enable her to use her hand more. Now, Aziza also needs an amputation of the small finger of her left hand. Her small finger has significant flexion contracture with severe damage to the joint capsules. Aziza is being raised by one of her aunts while her other siblings are being raised by other relatives after their mother passed away three years ago. Their father is not reliable in taking care of the children, and that’s when relatives decided to come in to help since they would miss meals and they didn’t have anyone to wash their clothes or provide them with other needs. Aziza’s aunt has three children of her own and including Aziza she has a total of four children. Aziza’s aunt is a stay at home wife while the husband sells bicycle spare parts and repairs them for a living. The income is not much but just enough to help support the family. Aziza says, “I am scared to lose a part of my hand but I agree with the surgeons that it is necessary and I hope it will help me be able to use my hand more. Please help me get this treatment.”
