Kyasimire underwent a mass excision procedure.

Kyasimire had a mass excision surgery and is feeling so much better. She’s no longer worried and can comfortably resume her usual farming duties. She’s happy to be heading home from the hospital feeling well with a new life and new hope ahead.

Kyasimire says, “I thank the WATSI program for making my surgery a success through financial support. It’s a dream come true because I had lost hope. May God bless you.”

Kyasimire is a 37-year-old small scale farmer who works on her farm together with her husband to provide for their five children. They make a humble income to see their children through school and also meet necessary medical costs.

For some time now, Kyasimire has had a submandibular mass. The mass is swollen, disfiguring her mandible, and she is worried about the gradual increase in size. She is also afraid of the health implication it might bring if left untreated. Kyasimire had been to a different facility in 2020 and was recommended to undergo surgery. However, the cost was too much for her to afford at the time. At Rushoroza Hospital, she was recommended to undergo the same surgery and was fortunately linked with our medical partner and Watsi for support.

On June 10th, surgeons will remove the mass from her jaw. Now, Kyasimire needs help to raise $145 to fund this procedure.

Kyasimire shared, “I pray that I may have a successful surgery. I will resume farming as soon as possible because it is the major source of our family’s income to support our children.”
