Ritah is a 41-year-old woman from Uganda. She works as a volunteer administrator at a baby’s home, and also grows beans, sorghum, and potatoes.
Ritah was diagnosed with a fistula, which is a connection between organs that should not be connected and is a condition especially common in women. A doctor has recommended surgical treatment.
In her free time, Ritah enjoys visiting babies in children’s homes to counsel them and offer material support, like the food that she grows. Ritah also enjoys visiting adolescents in schools to offer advice. Ritah hopes to visit communities to educate women about fistulas so that they can seek treatment. Her own treatment is scheduled for September 30.
Ritah said, “I thank donors for supporting my treatment and I pray God to protect them in everything they do to support the ladies out of their problems.”
Watsi is requesting $547 to help fund Ritah’s procedure.
