Dinah is an elderly woman from Uganda who is suffering from lower abdominal pain, headache and occasional vaginal bleeding. She was reviewed in our facility and diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia and a total hysterectomy surgery is advised.
Previously, Dinah had been to several hospitals to no fruition of treatment. Her major concern was the required hospital fee. At our hospital, she was linked with our program for support with funding treatment.
The 81-year old mother of 8 children lives at home relying on her children for upkeep. With the cost of surgery high, the family is not able to raise sufficient funds for Dinah’s treatment. They appeal for help.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $208 to fund Dinah’s surgery. On January 24th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Dinah will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Dinah says, “I expect to have a better health after my surgery.”
