Shillah is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is a mother of five and resides in a three-room iron sheet house in Rukingiri district, Uganda. Her husband is a mechanic in the nearest town; however, even with their shared income, they cannot afford Shillah’s surgery. During her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family.
She is currently expecting her sixth child. Her doctors recommended that she deliver via a caesarean section because of two previous childbirth scars. This way, doctors can ensure the safety of both mother and child.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Shillah undergo a C-Section on May 23rd. This procedure will cost $252 and Shillah needs your support.
Shillah says, “I hope to be relieved of this burden of financial constraints. I am hoping to deliver my baby safely and be able to resume farming for a living.”
