Mercy is a 49-year-old single mother of two children from Kenya who makes a living as a street vendor.
Mercy has been experiencing heavy bleeding and lower abdominal pains for the past three years. She has been diagnosed with uterine fibroids. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $791 to fund Mercy’s surgery. On July 3, she will undergo surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Mercy will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
“I have no one to help me yet this problem is affecting my social life and my ability to work. I am asking for Watsi’s help so that I can be well and be able to live a normal life,” shared Mercy.
