Lydia is a 49-year-old woman from Uganda and a proud mom of five. She and her husband practice subsistence farming to provide for their family.
Recently, Lydia has been experiencing severe lower abdominal pain, backaches, and other worrisome symptoms. She visited the hospital, where the surgeons determined she need to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help Lydia receive the treatment she needs to heal! On February 9th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at AMH’s care center. Once recovered, Lydia will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. AMH is requesting $219 to fund Lydia’s surgery.
Lydia says: “My hope is entirely in you, and I implore you to save my life so that I can resume farming to provide for my family.”
