Musiimenta is a 46-year-old farmer from Uganda. She was married with six children, three girls and three boys, however her has husband left their family. Since she has been unwell and with no energy due to her health condition, she has not been able to cultivate enough to provide school fees and all her children are now out of school and helping with cultivation.
Since three years ago, Musiimenta has been experiencing pain and bleeding. She has been diagnosed with a premalignant cervical lesion and a left tubal ovarian mass. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Musiimenta’s surgery. On June 9th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Musiimenta will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Musiimenta shared: “I would really wish my surgery is supported by the program because I can’t afford it on my own. It’s my hope of having a new life so that I can regain my health and resume with cultivation to support my family. Maybe I can even send my children back to school when I have fully recovered.”
