Asiimwe is a kindergarten teacher who expects to deliver her second child in August. Asiimwe graduated from college as a kindergarten teacher and used to teach in Kampala. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and with the closure of schools, she returned to her village in southwestern Uganda to try out farming to provide for her family. Currently, she lives with her uncle because Asiimwe lost contact with her husband.
Asiimwe has had a full antenatal package and during her last visit, the midwife recommended her for a caesarian section to ensure a safe birth for the mother and child.
Asiimwe says, “With my income nowadays, I am not able to pay for the surgery yet I desire to have a live baby. Please support my treatment.”
