Kemigabo is a 50-year-old nurse from Uganda. She is a single mother of two daughters. The older daughter is in nursing school, and the younger is in sixth grade.
For two years, Kemigabo has been experiencing irregular, prolonged, and heavy bleeding. 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 $268 to fund Kemigabo’s surgery. On November 14, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Kemigabo will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Kemigabo says, “After surgery I will continue working as a nurse.”
