Kariyo is a farmer from Uganda. She is married and a mother to eight children who are all married and self-employed as small-scale farmers. Her husband is in his mid-eighties and he also practices small-scale farming.
Since 20 years ago, Kariyo has been experiencing lower abdominal pain, dysuria and an abnormal vaginal discharge. She has been diagnosed with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $208 to fund Kariyo’s surgery. On February 6th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Kariyo will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Kariyo says, “I hope that by your support, I will undergo my surgery and I will be fine.”
