Jolly is 53-year-old farmer and a married mother of five children. She has three sons and two daughters. Jolly’s daughters are teachers while two of her sons are drivers and the youngest son still in school. Jolly earns a living from small-scale farming while her husband is a fisherman. Their shared income helps meet their family’s daily needs.
For the last two years, Jolly has suffered swelling in her left foot from an injury she sustained. The swelling continues to grow in size and becomes increasingly painful when Jolly is walking. Doctors at Nyakibale Hospital diagnosed Jolly with a lipoma that requires removal to help her heal. On March 3rd, surgeons will remove the mass and our medical partners at African Mission Healthcare are helping Jolly raise $137 to fund this procedure.
Jolly shared, “I believe that I’ll get better and be able to resume my farm activities to support my family once I’ve fully recovered.”
