Elida is a 26-year-old farmer from Uganda who is expecting her second child. Elida and her husband live in southwest Uganda. When she is not working in the fields, Elida enjoys weaving mats for her house, participating in the local savings and loans group, and singing in the church choir.
Because Elida’s first child was delivered by caesarean section, she is considered to have a high-risk pregnancy. Doctors want to monitor her carefully in case any unexpected complications arise. Elida lives about 50 km from the hospital, so she is staying in the hospital under constant supervision starting on June 25 until her baby is delivered.
Elida is very thankful to all of the donors for supporting her delivery. Although she is able to contribute $7 to the cost of her care, she is still in need of $241 to cover her antenatal and postpartum visits, hospital stay and delivery, labs, and medication.
