Min received surgery to repair a fractured tibia.

His family says, “This has been like a god-sent help for us. We could have never afforded this treatment on our own.”

Meet Min, a 10-year-old from Nepal! Min lives with his parents, grandparents, four brothers and sister. He loves school and right now his favorite subject is Nepali. Min also loves to play volleyball.

Min was sitting on a bench at school when it broke. His tibia also broke in the process and now his thigh is twisted at a very odd angle due to an incomplete union of the pieces of the bone. Min has a limited range of motion and is experiencing pain and swelling.

For $1,240, a surgery can be performed that will repair the joint and give Min full range of motion again. Let’s help Min get back on the volleyball court!

Kyosimire

Kyosimire is a 40-year-old small-scale farmer who stays at her parents’ home despite being married. She completed sixth grade in primary school and receives limited support from her husband and father who have other families. Kyosimire got married in 2017. She shared that she delayed getting married because she needed to take good care of her mother. After her mother’s death, that’s when she decided to get married. She married a man who has another family with 6 children; she could therefore not get the care and support she hoped from her husband. She has had abdominal pains for the past five years and she thinks her problem of not conceiving could be connected to her abdominal pains. She feels severe pain along with bleeding and sometimes develops swollen legs plus a high heartbeat. She has only used pain medicine from clinics to relieve her pain but has never visited any hospital for medical attention. She has now come to Rushoroza Hospital to seek medical advice. At Rushoroza doctors have recommended she have a total abdominal hysterectomy. The surgery is expected to remove a leiomyoma; hence relieving her pain, the menorrhagia, bleeding, and averting additional complications. She is on her own and cannot afford the surgery charges despite being in severe pain. She shared that she experiences sleepless nights due to the pain and she seeks financial support for the surgery. She said, “I had lost hope. Given the opportunity with the surgery, I believe I can be able to work harder through farming to be able to sustain myself and my entire family.”

Kyampire

Kyampire is a mother of five girls. She lost her husband in February 2001. All her daughters are married, but are struggling in their families due to lack of adequate education. Her firstborn is 24 years old and completed secondary school class three, the second born is 23 years old and completed primary school class six, her third is 22 years old and completed secondary school class two, while her youngest is 20 years old and dropped from secondary school class three. Her husband had not constructed a house for them but Kyampire tried her best and constructed a three-room semi-permanent house for herself and her girls. Kyampire started feeling abdominal pains and scans at Kabale referral hospital showed she had uterine fibroids. As the pains persisted, she went to a private doctor who advised her to have surgery but could not because she could not afford the surgery charges. She tried herbs and pain medicine to reduce the pain but she feels it is now beyond her control and that’s why she came to Rushoroza Hospital. If not treated, she could develop severe anaemia leading to heart failure. She has severe abdominal pain stopping her from doing her day to day activities. Kyampire did not go to school and survives on small-scale farming. Her normal duties are affected because she feels severe pain when digging and feels pain and heavy when walking; this greatly slows down her general performance in any activity she takes on. She at times finds it difficult to walk completely. Kyampire told us: “I pray for a successful surgery. I look forward to being normal again and be able to carry out my farming activities as comfortably as I had always done; making it easy to take good care of myself, God willing.”
