Mutabazi is a 65-year-old banana farmer from Uganda. She’s a widow and the mother of 11 children.
For the last year, Mutabazi has been living with a cystocele, an uncomfortable gynecological condition. Mutabazi has been experiencing regular headaches, back pain, and frequent urinary tract infections. Over time, the pain has grown so severe that she hasn’t been able to work on her banana farm, making it difficult to provide for her family.
On May 16, Mutabazi will receive uterine prolapse repair surgery. Since Mutabazi can’t afford to pay for the operation, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $287 to fund the treatment.
Mutabazi’s doctors expect that she will make a full recovery following the treatment. Mutabazi is also optimistic.
“I hope to work again in my banana plantation after surgery,” she says.
