Vonta had her uterine fibroids removed.

“Vonta successfully underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH) and is recovering well. She is now relieved from the bleeding, risk of anaemia and pain,” shares our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation. “When Vonta is recovered fully, she will be able to resume work and raise her children.”

Vonta goes on to share with a smile, “I thank God and the donors for the successful surgery. Now I can go back to work and earn to support my children.”

“I really hope Watsi will support me and that my treatment will be successful so that I can support my children and see them grow,” says Vonta, a 38-year-old single mother of two from Nairobi. Vonta works as a house cleaner, and barely makes enough money to support herself and her children.

For over a year Vonta has suffered from uterine fibroids, a condition that causes heavy uterine bleeding and lower abdominal pain. The fibroids are affecting Vonta’s ability to care for her family; she explains, “This bleeding and the pain is making it difficult for me to go to work.” Without treatment, Vonta’s fibroids will continue to grow and she will be at risk for anemia.
