Butaara is a 71-year-old small scale farmer. Butaara is a mother of seven children, with her firstborn now 49 years old, while her youngest child is 37 years old. Most of her children are married and are low-income earners who were not able to complete school. Both she and her husband are farmers, and her husband is also on the local council of their village. They own a four-room semi-permanent house for shelter.
For the last 25 years, Butaara has experienced worsening pain and discomfort on her back. Upon visiting our medical partner’s care center, doctors recommend that the mass needs to be excised.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On January 13th, surgeons will remove the mass on her back. Now, our partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $145 to fund this procedure.
Butaara shared, “I want to be able to work comfortably again and become an even more productive farmer.”
