about Orikiriza's recovery.

July 13, 2020

Orikiriza is married and a mother to two daughters who are both still in school. She is divorced from the father of her children, but got married to her second husband seven years ago. She earns a living from small-scale farming while her husband is a casual laborer. Unfortunately, they have also recently separated.

Orikiriza has been experiencing irregular menstrual bleeding for the past two years. She feels general body weakness and is easily fatigued. She reports drowsiness and at time experiences dry mouth but her chief complaint is backache and lower abdominal pain. This has affected her quality of life and work performance.

She has been diagnosed with bilateral ovarian cysts. If they are not removed her symptoms may persist. Fortunately our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare can help, Orikiriza receive treatment. Now, she needs your help to raise the $220 to fund the cost of her surgery.

Orikiriza shared, “I hope to get much better after my surgery so that I can resume farming.”
