September 8, 2021

Edinah is a 25-year-old pregnant, married mother of two children from Southwestern Uganda. She and her husband work as farmers to provide for their family.

Edinah recently visited our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH). Upon examination at AMH’s care center, the doctor recommended a Caesarean section delivery for her baby. An attempt to deliver her baby vaginally could cause uterine rupture, which could be fatal to her and her unborn child. Her C-Section is scheduled for September 9th, and now she needs help raising $252 to fund her procedure and care.

Edinah shared, “my survival is entirely based on farming and as I speak, I am no longer doing anything. Am afraid of where I will get money from. I hope for a safe surgery and support.”
