Mukamabano is a 27-year-old mother living in Uganda with a friend while she looks for a job. She has two sons who live with their paternal grandmother in Rwanda. Mukamabano’s husband passed away in 2012.
Eight years ago, during the delivery of one of her children, Mukamabano developed an abnormal condition in a sensitive area. Since then, she has been experiencing uncomfortable symptoms, but she has been unable to afford treatment. Finally, she visited our medical partner’s hospital, Holy Family Virika Hospital.
On December 27, Mukamabano’s physicians will perform a corrective surgery. The total cost of the procedure is $297, which covers medications, supplies, and two weeks of inpatient care.
Following recovery, Mukamabano will no longer experience uncomfortable symptoms. She plans to continue looking for a job so that she can support herself.
