Loyce welcomed a healthy baby but did not undergo a c-section delivery.

Our medical partner just shared that Loyce ended up in labor earlier than planned and needed to go to a clinic near her home. She delivered without a c-section and welcomed a healthy baby. She was relieved and excited to be heading home with her new little one. Loyce hopes we can help support another patient in need!

Loyce is a 19-year old married woman. She and her husband are expecting their first child. To make a living, Loyce runs a small-scale retail shop, while her husband sells roasted maize. Unfortunately, the pandemic adversely affected both of their businesses. Their family lives in a single room rental home.

Recently, Loyce was examined at a local hospital where her scans indicated that her baby has a gastrointestinal tract congenital abnormality. It is recommended that she deliver her baby by Caesarean section, because a vaginal delivery could cause further complications.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Loyce to receive treatment. On November 4th, she will deliver her baby via C-Section at AMH’s care center. The C-Section will ensure a safe and healthy delivery for both Loyce and her baby. Now, she and her husband need help raising $252 to fund the procedure and care.

Loyce shared, ‘‘I am not in a financial position to finance the surgery. I really appreciate your kindness to support me.’’
