Kamusiime underwent gyn surgery.

Kamusiime underwent a successful treatment due to cystocele and she is currently doing well with no complaints. She will have a better life as she has been relieved of previous symptoms that had affected her lifestyle.

Kamusiime said, “I appreciate you very much for enabling me to undergo a successful surgery under your support. I had given up on my health as I was unable to do anything to change my life. I am hoping to continue with farming after full recovery.”

Kamusiime is a 44-year-old married mother to five children, four girls all married and are small-scale farmers and one boy who is still young and in school. She earns a living through practicing small scale farming and so does her husband. They mostly growing sorghum, millet beans, and cassava and because they have poor agriculture methods, she earns smaller yields and lowering her income.

Kamusiima presented feeling a vaginal mass, excessively prolonged bleeding, and backache for more than two years. Her condition is associated with dizziness, epigastric pain, and headaches. This has made a poor quality of life and if not treated, Kamusiima’s symptoms may persist.

Kamusiima had never been to any hospital for treatment of her condition but having heard of Watsi’s efforts at Nyakibale Hospital, she decided to come for support. She was examined and had a scan, where she was diagnosed with menopausal with cystocele and uterine prolapse. The doctor told her that she needs a trans-vaginal hysterectomy.

She can’t afford the costs of her surgery and needs support. Kamusiime says, “I hope that my surgery will enable me to regain normal health once again.”

Htun

Htun is a 15-year-old student from Thailand. He lives with his aunt, uncle, three cousins, and a cousin-in-law in a town in Tak Province. Htun is in eighth grade and goes to a Burmese migrant school. Htun has two older brothers who work in a factory in Bangkok. They support Htun occasionally by sending money to Htun's aunt. His aunt, his older pregnant cousin, and his cousin-in-law are homemakers. His two other cousins are students at a Thai school, while his uncle is a farmer who grows rice and corn. Htun's uncle earns a living as a farmer and delivery driver. In his free time, Htun likes to draw cartoons and play cane ball with his friends. On June 8th 2020, Htun was driving back home on his motorbike after visiting his friend. While driving home it began to rain and he fell, landing on his left wrist. Currently, Htun cannot move his wrist and it is swollen and painful. Although he took pain medication, it has not helped him. At night, he feels uncomfortable and cannot sleep well because of the pain. With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Htun will undergo surgery to reset his fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for July 3 and will cost $1,500. After surgery, Htun will be able to move his wrist and will no longer be in pain. Htun and his family need your help to fund the cost of this surgery. Htun shared, “I am very sad and worry that my hand will not be normal after surgery. In the future, I want to become a famous can ball player."
