October 6, 2021

Gift is a 31-year-old woman from Western Uganda. She is a married mother to three children, all of whom were delivered via c-section. She and her husband work as small scale farmers and her husband also fishes and raises goats to make ends meet for their family.

Gift is carrying her fifth pregnancy and shared that, unfortunately, she experienced one miscarriage. She has been receiving care throughout her pregnancy and her doctor recommended she deliver by Caesarean section to avoid complications like uterine rupture.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping to provide delivery care for Gift and her baby. On October 7th, Gift will undergo a C-Section at AMH’s care center to ensure a safe delivery for her and her baby. Now, she needs help raising $252 to fund her delivery and care.

Gift shared, “I am afraid of the cost implications, yet I want a safe delivery. I will be grateful for your support.”
