Mugabirwe is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She lost her husband 10 years ago. She now lives with her parents where she practices farming.
For the last 7 years, Mugabirwe has been experiencing lower abdominal pains and severe headaches. She has been diagnosed with multiple intrauterine 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 $228 to fund Mugabirwe’s surgery. On August 5th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Mugabirwe will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain and her quality of life will improve.
Mugabirwe shared, “I hope to be myself again and be able to carry on my usual farming duties, help me God.”
