June 30, 2020

Arinaitwe is a student and the youngest in the family of five children. She has two brothers, one is a driver and another one is a teacher in a local private primary school. All of her sisters are married, one is a nurse and another is a small-scale farmer. Arinaitwe’s parents are also small scale farmers, but her father mostly brews local alcohol called ‘waragi’. Arinaitwe is a first-year student at Kabale University and is pursuing a degree in education.

Arinaitwe arrived at hospital presenting with right iliac fossa pain, which she has experienced for two years now. Her condition is associated with a backache. She feels pain when she lifts a heavy load and has joint pain, especially late in the evening. She often experiences headaches as well. All this has caused her to have a poor quality of life and if not treated, her pain and discomfort will persist.

Her doctors have diagnosed her with Ovarian Cysts. They will perform a cystectomy treatment to restore her health. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $220 to help cover the cost of her surgery.

Arinaitwe shared, “I am hopeful for a better life after my surgery as I will be relieved from all the pain I have been experiencing. I will be able to continue with school after the COVID-19 lockdown.”
