Meet 57-year-old Miriam from Uganda. She has six children and ten grandchildren. The income Miriam earns from growing crops goes towards her children’s education. In her free time, Miriam enjoys singing gospel songs and spending time with her grandchildren.
Miriam developed an utero-vaginal prolapse following the birth of her youngest child. She experiences incontinence, and the pain prevents her from working. Miriam traveled for 36 hours to reach our medical partner’s care center for treatment. Doctors have now recommended Miriam for a hysterectomy and colphorraphy to correct her condition and relieve her of her symptoms. This is scheduled to take place on October 31.
Miriam’s husband has sadly passed away and Miriam is unable to afford the $321 surgery on her own. Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is asking for donations to support Miriam.
“I would like to thank God for the support I have received from Watsi and I would like to inspire others with my story,” says Miriam.
