Kyomukama underwent a mass removal in her abdomen.

Kyomukama had the mass in her abdomen wall removed and all went successfully. She is already feeling better. Kyomukama is hopeful that she’ll be able to sleep again and will be able to do her day to day duties without difficulty. She plans to start small scale farming as soon as possible.

Kyomukama says, “I thank Watsi for making my surgery a success with financial support. Many thanks to Rushoroza Hospital for the care given to me. Bless you.”

Kyomukama is a 45-year-old mother of three. Her husband works as a driver for the Local Council, and together they own a three-room permanent house for shelter. Kyomukama’s firstborn is 18 years old and in secondary school class three, while the last born is 13 years old and in primary school class seven. She and her husband work hard to support their children and pay for their school fees.

For the last year, Kyomukama has had a left abdominal wall mass. The mass had been excised a year ago, but since then has recurred in the same area and is increasing in size. Now, she needs surgery to have the new mass removed.

Kyomukama traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On April 6th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Kyomukama needs help to raise $145 to fund this procedure.

Kyomukama shared, “I am helpless and I am worried; I need the surgery. I plan to start farming as soon as I recover completely.”

Ma Nwe

Ma Nwe is a 33-year-old woman who lives with her husband and two daughters in Burma. Her eldest daughter goes to school, while she looks after the youngest daughter at home. Her husband is a day laborer, but unfortunately, due to economic difficulties brought on by COVID-19 and the military coup in Burma, her husband cannot find work every day. The income he earns is not enough to cover the family's daily expenses or pay for basic health care. Two weeks ago, Ma Nwe was boiling water and sitting near the stove while her daughter played nearby. Her daughter accidentally bumped into the pot on the stove, causing it to spill the boiling water on Ma Nwe's left foot. Right away, Ma Nwe ran cold water over her foot and applied chicken fat to her burnt skin. The next day, she went to see a traditional healer who applied medicine to her foot. However, her foot has become infected and she has developed an ulcer. She is in pain and has difficulty sleeping. Due to her injury, she cannot look after her daughters or do household chores. Ma Nwe's husband’s grandmother recommended that she visit our medical partner's care center. On September 2nd, Ma Nwe visited the care center of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), for treatment. There, the doctor examined her foot, drained her ulcer, and ordered a blood test. Since her foot is badly infected, the doctor recommended that she undergo a wound debridement as soon as possible. Ma Nwe will have the procedure on September 9th. Now, she needs help to raise $694 to fund her procedure and care. Ma Nwe shared, "I want to recover as quickly as possible so that I can be with my daughters again. I want to play with them."
