Gloria safely delivered her baby.

She delivered a healthy baby girl by C-section. Both Gloria and her daughter are back home and doing well.

“Thank you again for the help,” says Gloria. “We don’t have a lot of money, and the money we would have spent on hospital bills we can now save for school fees. We are very grateful.”

Meet Gloria, a mother from a village in Uganda. She visited our medical partner’s care center, Bwindi Community Hospital, when she was expecting her second child. Because she delivered her first child by C-section, her doctors decided that she should undergo another C-section. On November 14, Gloria checked into the hospital to await delivery.

Gloria works as a farmer with her husband, Wilber. They own their own land, but they also work on other farms. Wilber picks tea in the community to earn money to buy necessities, such as soap and salt. When she is not working, Gloria enjoys playing with her three-year-old son and watching him play with his friends in the community.

Gloria has contributed $4 to her treatment costs. She needs help to raise an additional $241, which will fund antenatal and postpartum care, in addition to assistance while she is in labor.

Gloria told our medical partner that she was looking forward to raising her new baby daughter and eventually sending her to school. “Thank you so much for the help with my safe delivery,” she says. “It means we will not have to sell the little land we have for this service. God bless you.”
