Geradina is a farmer and a mother of eight children. Geradina’s husband passed away in 2011, which meant Geradina became the sole provider for their children still living at home. She works on the farm to make ends meet, but her medical condition often makes this work challenging.
Geradina has experienced swelling for the past eight years and was scheduled to undergo a procedure in March but could not make the appointment due to the transportation fees. She was recently able to gather the money needed to visit the hospital again. Upon review, doctors diagnosed her condition as a cystocele and recommended she undergo uterine prolapse repair surgery.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help Geradina finally heal. On May 17th, she will undergo surgery that will allow her to lead a more comfortable life. AMH is requesting $220 to fund this treatment.
Geradina says, “I will be very happy when this condition is relived from me as I had given up on myself due to lack of money for treatment. I look forward to resuming with farming since it’s my source of livelihood.”
