Buradina is a 72-year-old farmer from Uganda. She and her husband had three children together, but sadly her husband and two of her children have passed away.
For the past twenty years, Buradina has experienced severe abdominal pain, back pain, and swelling. Due to her pain, Buradina has been unable to work and earn a living.
Buradina was diagnosed with uterine fibroids, a type of noncancerous growth in the uterus, and a cystocele, a condition where abdominal support tissue weakens. To relieve her pain, Buradina needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. However, due to her current inability to work, Buradina can’t pay for her treatment on her own.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $219 to fund Buradina’s surgery. On June 8th, she will undergo a hysterectomy at AMH’s care center. Once recovered, Buradina will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Buradina says, “I am a very vulnerable elderly mother, and I appeal for your possible support. I myself cannot raise the required money. I will resume farming when all is well.”
