Niwenyesiga underwent a mass excision surgery.

Niwenyesiga had a successful surgery that helped remove a soft tissue tumour from her thigh. Through this surgery, she will be able to walk without pain, even long distances; and being a businesswoman, this will improve her productivity and ability to support her family. She was discharged with minimal complaints and once fully recovered, will have a better quality of life.

Niwenyesiga says, “I thank Watsi and Rushoroza Hospital for their joint effort in making my surgery a success. I will continue with my business and plan to open up a simple mobile money shop with my husband’s support.”

Niwenyesiga is a business owner from Uganda. She usually sells second-hand clothes around town, but her business has been closed for some time due to the current COVID-19 conditions in her country. Her husband is a small-scale farmer and they rent a single room home. They currently cannot afford the surgery charges

For the last three years, Niwenyesiga has experienced pain and discomfort and has been diagnosed with a mass on her thigh. The mass is causing severe pain and needs to be excised to prevent her symptoms from growing worse.

Fortunately Niwenyesiga traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On July 16th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Niwenyesiga needs help to raise $152 to fund this procedure.

Niwenyesiga shared, “I hope for an improved life after the surgery. Being able to walk comfortably will enable carry out my duties normally and enable me to take good care of my family. I will resume working at my business as soon as possible.”
