Jovinah is a 63-year-old Kenyan farmer and mother of 3 children, all of them now working small jobs whenever they can. Jovinah lost her husband in 2004 and has been farming to make ends meet. Her farm does not produce enough to cover her day-to-day needs and other costs like the medical care she needs.
For 16 years, Jovinah has lived with a mass on her left hand near the scapula. Recently, she has been experiencing pain and difficulty in using her hand especially with the mass growing in size.
On October 18th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Jovinah needs help to raise $137 to fund this procedure.
Jovinah says “My condition has been on for a long time but I had no money to get treatment. I will be grateful when am supported so that I can live a better life and have an easier time with my farming.”
