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.”
