Agnes is a 74-year-old farmer who has been a widow since 1998. She is a mother of eight children who now are all married and practice small-scale farming to earn a living.
For ten years, Agnes has had an extremely painful mass (lipoma) on her left arm, this has largely preventing her from being able to do a lot of work. When she came to Nyakibale Hospital, she was happy to learn that she could finally get the mass removed.
On May 17th, Agnes will undergo surgery and now she needs help to raise $137 to fund this procedure.
Agnes shared: “At my old age, I could never afford the money for any surgery. This condition keeps me from working and since I lost my husband my standards of living are poor. Through your support, I shall gain my ability to fend for myself through farming.”
