Agnes is 37 years old and has eight children and one grandchild. She is a farmer by occupation and grows cassava, maize, and beans to feed and support her family.
For the past ten years, she has experienced severe lower abdominal and back pain. She also experiences urinary difficulty. She has been to local health facilities but has not received any treatment to improve her symptoms.
She heard a radio announcement about our medical partner’s care center, Bwindi Community Hospital, and traveled 36 hours by bus to receive assistance. She was diagnosed with a uterine prolapse and needs a total abdominal hysterectomy.
The surgery is scheduled for November 3. Now, she needs help raising $321 to fund treatment.
