Komurere is a 63-year-old farmer and mother of six from Uganda.
Komurere has been living with a painful swelling on her left buttock for the past five years that has grown and become more painful over time. Komurere says that due to her condition, she feels uncomfortable and often experiences pain when sitting.
On June 29, Komurere will undergo mass removal surgery. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $187 to fund surgical materials, medication and three nights of hospital stay. After her recovery, Komurere will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Komurere says, “I hope to have peace of mind and continue with farming to make sure I care for the children I was left with by my husband.”
