Twebaze is a nurse from Uganda. Twebaze is a married mother to three children, all are in school. The first one is in senior four while the last one is in senior one. She runs a drug store and her husband teaches construction at a private technical institute. They have both suffered financially due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Twenty years ago, Twebaze began experiencing painful and heavy menstrual periods. She has been diagnosed with adenomyosis. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Twebaze’s surgery. On August 20th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Twebaze will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Twebaze says, “I hope to get much better because this condition has been a big issue to me all along. I will continue with my work after I have fully recovered.”
