Tukesiga is a pregnant mother of two children. She completed secretarial studies in school, but has not been able to find a job in her field and is a farmer now. Tukesiga’s parents are small scale farmers. She has four siblings, two of which are carpenters and two of which are still in school. She is married and her husband is a boda boda taxi driver. The family lives in a single room rental house.
Tukesiga was recommended to deliver her new baby by Caesarean section due to a previous C-Section scar and to prevent complications such as uterine rupture. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Tukesiga to receive treatment and, on July 6th, she will deliver her baby via C-Section at AMH’s care center. Now, she needs helping funding the $252 procedure.
Tukesiga shared, “when given a chance to deliver under your support, it will be a miracle to me as finances were my major worry. I hope to deliver a live and healthy baby whom I promised to take good care of with the little money I get from farming.”
