Namara is a 33-year-old farmer from Rukungiri district in Uganda. She is married and a mother to three children, two of whom are in kindergarten. Namara loves singing and she often listens to her radio. She earns a living from farming cabbages and tomatoes with her husband.
Namara is carrying her fourth pregnancy and she has been attending antenatal care at Nyakibale Hospital. Namara’s three children were all born via caesarean section and her doctor has recommended she deliver by caesarean to prevent complications like uterine rupture. However, Namara can’t afford the $252 cost of her surgery and appeals for support.
Namara says, “Things haven’t been going on the right way in my surgical deliveries previously and I now ask for your support.”
