Namugerwa is a farmer and a mother of three daughters who are all in school. While studying in high school, Namugerwa’s father passed away, she she left school and got married to a farmer. She complements her income by working temporary jobs in their neighbourhood. In her free time, Namugerwa really enjoys music.
For nine months, Namugerwa has been experiencing backache, fatigue, and other uncomfortable symptoms. She tried managing the symptoms with local herbs but it has not improved. Fortunately, she visited our medical partner’s care center, Nyakibale Hospital, and the doctors diagnosed that she has a cervical lesion. Namugerwa’s gynaecologist recommends a total abdominal hysterectomy to ensure her condition does not become malignant and metastasize.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMH), is requesting $219 to fund Namugerwa’s surgery. On August 3rd, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Namugerwa will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Namugerwa shared with a hopeful smile, “I am looking forward to having an improved life like it was before once am given your support to undergo surgery.”
