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.”
