“I wish I could get help and be well again!” shares Tumwesigye, a 65-year-old woman from Uganda.
Tumwesigye was diagnosed with uterine prolapse, a condition that caused her uterus to drop out of her vagina. “It causes her back pain and she feels uncomfortable. If not treated, Tumwesigye may develop severe infection which could result in death,” explains our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF).
“When Tumwesigye delivered her first child, she felt her lower abdomen was not stable; it was as if it was suspending. She didn’t get the same feeling after delivering the children that followed. However, after delivering her last child about 20 years ago her lower abdomen felt strange again. After some years her uterus came out. Tumwesigye was given herbs that made it go back inside again. Three months ago the uterus came out again. She came to Virika hospital for help after being advised by her neighbor,” explains AMHF.
$280 funds a treatment that will restore her uterus and no longer leave her at risk for severe infection. She will be able to go back to her work in the gardens. Tumwesigye is a widow with seven living children. Let’s help her get back on her feet and fund this treatment!
