Namatovu is a single mother to one child, a 10-year-old boy in fifth grade. She earns a living from her small retail shop business. She and her son live in a single-roomed rental house.

Namatovu has experienced colicky abdominal pain and a sharp pain within the left iliac fossa for the past year. This pain radiates into her abdomen and then later into her back thereby causing a severe backache. She feels abdominal discomfort whenever she is sitting and when she bends over. If not treated, the symptoms may persist.

Fortunately our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, can help. They have diagnosed her with a left ovarian mass that needs to be removed. She will undergo a cystectomy on July 7th. Now, they are requesting $220 to help fund the cost of her surgery.

Namatovu shared, “I will be grateful to have a healthy life after my surgery is done so I can continue with my business and provide for my son.”
