Kansiime underwent a c-section for high-risk pregnancy.

Kansiime underwent a c-section and delivered a baby girl with a birth weight of 2.9kgs. Both are doing well and in better health but, unfortunately, the baby was born with congenital abnormalities including Spinal Bifida and hydrocephaly. Doctor’s recommended a visit to a specialized hospital for further management of the abnormalities.

Kansiime says “Thanks so much for what you have done for me and I pray that may the living Lord bless you abundantly in return. I hope I will continue hustling through my work as a librarian to make sure that my child gets better but I really appreciate everything.”

Kansiime was received at the hospital as a referral from a clinic in Rukungiri town with an abdominal scan revealing a pregnancy with a frontal brain cyst to be reviewed by a specialized doctor for further management. Having been reviewed by the gynaecologist, an emergency scan was re-done which indicated a single fetus at 35 weeks of gestation. She further gives a history of two previous c-sections and was recommended to deliver by caesarean section for a better delivery outcome and to save both the baby and mother’s life.

Kansiime says she has been receiving treatment in a nearby clinic but by the time she was referred to Watsi’s Medical Partner care center Nyakibale Hospital for further management, she had used all the money she had for her treatment.

Kansiime is a married mother to two children delivered by emergency caesarean section and is expected to deliver her current pregnancy by caesarean section due to two previous deliveries. We expect to restore her lost hope by enabling her to successfully undergo her surgery.

Kansiime says, “I pray to the Almighty to enable me have a successful surgery.”

Adere

Adere is a nice thirteen year old boy who loves to go to school and study. He is in grade six and loves music. He spends his free time listening to country music and also loves to dance with his friends. His parents are farmers of teff and maize. But their harvest from their farm is very limited because of the hot and dry landscape. The population in the area is mostly supported by the government and NGOs for food and other basic needs. His parents have 12 children. Three of them are dependently living and the rest of the children are supported by their parents. Adere was born with congenital anomaly called Bladder Exstrophy. The child’s bladder is open to the air and not within the body. He leaks urine directly to his abdomen. As a result, he has bladder exposed to dirt which can cause infections and injury. Adere suffers from pain from irritation of the bladder, infection, and a bad smell from the continuous urinary leakage for the past years. In his classroom, he sits far from other students in the back alone. He mostly prefers to be alone, psychologically affected by the bad smell. His parents are always very worried and concerned because of his condition. They took him to a clinic in their area when he was a child, and the clinic told them this has to be treated in referral hospital. Their village is very rural that they couldn’t get to a hospital and the parents couldn’t bring him to the capital. Adere's brother said, “I believe he will have a normal life, free from any smell and psychological concerns.”
