Tumushabe is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. Tumushabe is a mother of five but is separated from her husband. She supports her children through small-scale farming.
For the last 4 months, Tumushabe has been experiencing lower abdominal pains. She has been diagnosed with intra-uterine fibroids. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $239 to fund Tumushabe’s surgery. On July 21, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Tumushabe will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain and her quality of life will improve.
Tumushabe says, “I am in severe pain, I am helpless. I can no longer do anything physical on my own. After treatment, I will comfortably resume small scale farming to be able to support my family like I have done before God willing.”
