Banywagabo is a farmer from Uganda. She is a widow who lost her husband 20 years ago, leaving her with four children. One son who is a carpenter and three daughters who are all married and small scale farmers. She earns a living from small scale farming where she grows food crops like beans, sorghum, and millet for home consumption and sells off the surplus to generate an income.
Since two years ago, Banywagabo has been experiencing severe abnormal vaginal bleeding and pain. She has been diagnosed with a premalignant cervical lesion and needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Banywagabo’s surgery. On June 9th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Banywagabo will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Banywagabo says: “I am more optimistic to having a new life so that I can continue with cultivation after surgery and please send my sincere regards to this program’s donors because am hopeful that they will help me overcome this problem.”
