“My delivery was safe and good since I was attended to by a skilled person in the health facility,” says Salome. “I was able to avoid any complication caused by home delivery.”

Salome is pregnant and due in July! Her husband is a teacher and together they farm watermelon, onions, maize and cabbage. This will be their second child. She told Lwala Community Alliance that she is feeling good and doesn’t have any complaints.

Let’s keep her feeling that way. For $215 Lwala can keep Salome and the baby healthy. Salome will receive clinical prenatal care, a hospital delivery and a post- birth checkup.

Pregnancy and childbirth are perilous for too many women like Salome, who may not otherwise be able to afford essential care. She recently said, “I hope for a brighter future where my children and I will be in a happy life, healthy and getting an education and everything.” Let’s help Salome on her quest to keep her children happy and healthy.

Loy

Loy is a 46-year-old small scale farmer and a strong mother to her five children who range from the ages of 21 to 11 years old. Due to difficult finances and lack of resources, all of Loy's children have received a partial primary school education at various levels. Loy and her husband earn their income by farming, and their family lives together in a four-room mud house for shelter. Four months ago, Loy began experiencing severe lower abdominal pains that have caused her many sleepless nights. She believes that her uterus is very weak because she had a number of complicated deliveries when she gave birth to her children. She visited a doctor in March and was given temporary medication to help ease the pain and discomfort. Months later, she can now no longer sleep comfortably, and has had to completely stop farming due to the pain. Loy has been diagnosed with chronic pelvic inflammatory disease and needs to undergo a hysterectomy, the surgical removal of the uterus, in order to treat her condition. Fortunately, on May 13th, Loy will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center, Rushoroza Hospital. Once recovered, Loy will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain and continue on with her farming in order to take care of her family. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $319 to help fund this surgery. Loy says, “I can no longer practice farming in my current condition and my family depends on farming. I hope to get well through surgery so that I may be able once again take better care of my family.”
