about Tumwebaze's recovery.

June 22, 2020

Tumwebaze is a 40-year-old mother to four children. She currently earns a living from small-scale farming where she grows food crops for her family to eat and sells the surplus to generate income for her family. Her husband is employed as a taxi driver.

Tumwebaze is currently expecting her fifth child and her doctors shared that she will need to deliver her baby with a caesarean section to avoid complications such as a ruptured uterus or fetal distress. Fortunately, doctors at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, can help her. They are requesting $264 to fund the cost of her surgery. Now, Tumwebaze needs your help.
