Medius is a 32-year-old mother of two children and is expecting her third child. She is the third child in a family of five children. Medius left school after completing level senior four due to financial strain from tuition, and farmed at home before getting married. Now, together with her husband, Medius does small-scale farming to grow crops for food.

Medius received a full antenatal care package at our medical partner’s care center, Nyakibale Hospital. A scan shows that Medius has one pregnancy with the fetus in an ideal position, but the doctor still recommends cesarean section delivery due to Medius’ previous two c-section deliveries. A c-section will reduce chances of complications such as uterine rupture, which could happen in an attempt to deliver vaginally. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $252 to fund this procedure for Medius’ safe delivery of her baby.

Medius shares, “I trust that with your support, my surgery will be a success and I hope to recover well and proceed with farming.”

Eudia

Eudia is a farmer and a 45-year-old single mother of two children. Her youngest just completed primary school and will be joining college next year while her daughter is in senior year three. Eudia earns a living through growing and selling onions, tomatoes, and eggplants. The income she generates enables her to cater to her needs and those of her parents as they live together. Eudia enjoys singing in the church choir. For a year now, Eudia has been experiencing abnormal bleeding, persistent backaches, generalized body weakness. She tried seeking medical treatment at a different healthcare center where they treated her for urinary tract infection. The treatment was not a success so they referred her to our medical partner's care center Nyakibale Hospital. At Nyakibale, she was examined with a scan and tests and has been diagnosed with a large uterine fibroid. Treatment will aid in the prevention of complications like anemia and the fibroid turning into cancer. Eudia is in need of treatment but is not financially able to finance it so she is requesting financial assistance. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $219 to fund Eudia's surgery. On January 4th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center. Once recovered, Eudia will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Eudia shared: “I am the sole provider for my family. My family needs me. I hope I will be able to regain my health and continue to support my family.”

Myo

Myo is 40-years-old and lives with his two sisters, two nephews, and two nieces in a village in Burma. He was a fisherman but stopped working when he started to experience problems on his left foot. As a result, his sisters support their household. One year ago, Myo noticed that his left big toe was itchy and swollen after he came home from fishing. Soon enough, it developed into an ulcer. Without enough money to go to a clinic or a hospital, he used traditional medicine and bought pain medicine to clean the infection. However, each time Myo would clean the ulcer, it would heal but returning a month later. Four months after he first developed the ulcer, the recurrent ulcer worsened until he could no longer walk without support from his sister. Eventually, he saved enough funds to visit a health clinic. When the ulcer still did not heal, he went to a second clinic and was referred to our medical partner's care center, Mawlamyine Christian Leprosy Hospital (MCLH). At MCLH, the doctor tried to first clean and treat the infection. When that did not work, the doctor told him that they would have to amputate his left big toe and referred Myo to our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF) for assistance accessing treatment. On January 13th, Myo will undergo treatment to amputate his left big toe so that his infection can finally be treated and not spread to other parts of his body. For the treatment, BCMF is requesting $1,500 to help cover the costs. Hopefully, he will be able to return to fishing and other activities he previously enjoyed soon. Myo is hopeful that things will be better after surgery and shared, "When I recover, I will find work and support my sisters’ families.”
