about Banobi's recovery.

July 20, 2020

Banobi is a 57-year-old mother of seven: her two sons both operate small-scale retail shops and her five daughters are all married and are small-scale farmers. She earns a living from her banana and coffee plantation which she operates with her husband. She lives with her husband and two grand children in a semi-permanent house.

Banobi has been experiencing lower abdominal pain, abnormal vaginal bleeding, and severe backaches. She has been diagnosed with a uterine prolapse. She also has an anterior and posterior cystocele and her doctors recommend her for colporrhaphy treatment as well. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, can help. Now, they are requesting $220 to fund Banobi’s surgical care.

Banobi shared, “I hope to recover from this painful condition I have had for a long time and be able to resume with farming after I have fully recovered.”
