Sylivia, who is 51-years-old, is the mother of four children. Their family lives in Uganda, where Sylivia and her husband practice small scale farming to provide for their family.
For the past year, Sylivia has been experiencing severe and abnormal bleeding, and lower abdominal pain. She has had to undergo a blood transfusion twice, and doctors have recommended surgery to remove the uterine fibroids that are the cause of Sylivia’s symptoms.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund the hysterectomy that Sylivia needs. On January 19th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at Karoli Lwanga Hospital, which should allow her to resume a healthy, pain free life.
Sylivia says: “All my hopes of getting better are by undergoing surgery, I hope with your support, I will surely get better.”
