Tuhangirire is a 53-year-old mother of two children. She shared that she works at a nearby tea farm where the employees are paid very little to meet all of their daily needs.
For two years, Tuhangirire has been experiencing symptoms like lower abdominal pain, bleeding, and backaches. She has been diagnosed with bilateral large ovarian cysts and the condition has affected her work. She gets easily tired and has difficulty sleeping. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $219 to fund Tuhangirire’s surgery. On June 9th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at AMH’s care center. Once recovered, Tuhangirire will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Tuhangirire shared, “I hope that when I am operated on, I will be relieved from pain and will do my activities with ease.”
