35-year-old Ketty is a local farmer from Uganda. She’s a single mother of two boys, which both attend a local primary school in their village. For the past two years, she has had lower abdominal pains that have been incurable by local herbalists, and says that the pain has only continued to increase.
During her free time, Ketty enjoys singing to her family, praying, and being with other women in the community. Ketty used to be on her village leadership committee as the secretary of defense, but could not continue serving her community because of the pain she was experiencing and the role requiring someone very mobile.
For $321, Ketty can receive care to treat her abdominal uterine and vaginal bleeding. Ketty says she’s looking forward to getting treatment and recovering fully, after which she will resume her activities in the village. She hopes that in the future she can be able to raise capital from her digging to start a small business.
