Jashuda is unfortunately not going to receive the treatment you funded, so we've just sent you a gift card in the amount of your donation.

We have an important update on Jashuda’s surgery. It did not happen because she became pregnant, and her surgeon recommended she postpone her surgery until after she gives birth to her child.

We are committed to transparently reporting all patient outcomes to you. Because Jashuda is postponing the treatment you funded, it’s important to us that you decide where your money goes next.

We’ve just emailed you a Watsi gift card for the same amount as your donation to Jashuda. We’d love for you to use this gift card to support another Watsi patient of your choice. But if you do not want to reallocate your donation to another patient, we’ll gladly refund your contribution.

Thanks again for supporting Watsi patients, we can’t tell you how much we appreciate it.

Jashuda is 32 and lives in Nepal with her husband, six children, and grandmother. She runs a small tea and snack shop, and also helps her family with farming.

Three years ago, Jashuda had an accident that left a painful keloid scar on her hand. Although the keloid is benign, it causes Jashuda great discomfort and needs to be removed.

Surgery for the excision costs $1,415. Following recovery, Jashuda’s pain will decrease, making it easier for her to run her shop and live a normal life!

Milka

Milka works as a house helper in Kenya. She is a mother of two children, now aged 29 and 20 years. Milka dropped out of school when she was younger after a short illness that required her to be admitted to a hospital. Afterward, she went to take care of an elderly man and she still has this job now. Milka has lived with him as she raised her children.They all live in a 2-bedroom house. She has a cow that helps her get milk to provide for them. For seven years, Milka has been experiencing troubling symptoms and abdominal pain. She went to a hospital in western part of Kenya in 2020 seeking medication where an ultrasound was done. The hospital referred her to another hospital for further care. However, she was unable to go to the hospital due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Milka's condition has made it difficult for her to attend to her normal duties as a mother and a house help. She came to our partner's hospital seeking medical care after hearing about it on the radio. She was reviewed by the gynecologist who recommended surgery to heal her fibroid and ovarian cyst. She has been diagnosed with leiomyoma of uterus. Milka needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $918 to fund Milka's surgery. On November 16th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center. Once recovered, Milka will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Milka says,”I will be glad when I get back to normal. The pain has been very uncomfortable making life difficult. My hope is to get treated and be well again.”
