August 24, 2020

Katurebe is a farmer from Uganda. She is a married mother to three children, with two sons who are motorcycle taxi operators and married. Her daughter is also a farmer. Her only source of income is from her banana and coffee plantation which she operates together with her elderly husband. Katurebe stays in a semi-permanent muddy house together with two grandchildren who she loves so much. They also help her with fetching water and she shared that she could not have survived in this condition without them helping her around their home.

Katurebe is experiencing severe lower abdominal pain, backache, and protrusion. She has been diagnosed with cystocele and rectocele and her doctors recommend a uterine prolapse repair surgery.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On August 25th, Katurebe will undergo surgery. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $220 to fund this treatment.

Katurebe said: “Surgery will be the only treatment because I have tried almost everything I can and failed. I will continue with farming and taking care of my grandchildren after I have fully recovered.”
