Kyomukama is a 30-year-old woman and mom-of-two. Her oldest is in the third grade and her youngest is in nursery school. Kyomukama never attended school herself as she lost her parents at a young age. She got married when she was 18 and together with her husband, they are small scale farmers. They try to sell what they can from the farm to earn for their family.

For the last two years, Kyomukama has experienced a severe colicky lower abdominal pain and discomfort. She reported that she often experiences a pins and needles feeling, and cannot sleep on her right side of the body due to a hard palpable mass she feels in her abdomen. Kyomukama also feels pain whenever she bends over during normal house activities or farming. This backache, along with general body weakness, are very uncomfortable for her and affect her ability to work on the farm.

Upon visiting Nyakibale Hospital, doctors conducted scans and concluded that she needs to undergo a cystectomy to remove an ovarian mass. Kyomukama will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare. Fortunately, she is scheduled to undergo a myringotomy on April 23rd. African Mission Healthcare is requesting $220 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care. Once recovered, her mobility will be restored and she will be pain free while going about her daily activities.

Kyomukama shared, “I desire to have my health restored. The sufferings have been too much. Please help me.”
