“I’m glad there are people who can help me,” says Nyindombi, a 71-year-old woman from Uganda. Nyindombi is a patient with our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). She recently experienced uterine prolapse, and has ulcers due to friction between her uterus and thighs.
“Nyindombi has delivered all of her nine children in the village without medical care,” explains AMHF. “A year after she delivered her last child, 25 years ago, she felt as if her uterus was not in its position. A few years after, she started feeling lower abdominal pain and headache.”
“Early 2015 she notice her uterus was coming out but she didn’t have money to go for treatment,” continues AMHF. “She decided to live with the condition until at the beginning of 2016 when she was advised to go to AMHF to seek assistance.”
If not treated, there is a significant risk that she develops a severe infection from the ulcers. $280 funds a treatment that will treat her condition, and prevent risk of severe infection. She will be able to walk well again.
