Eunice is a 22-year-old mother from Uganda. She and her husband, Hudu, have one daughter and are currently expecting their second child. Eunice is a student in a tertiary institution, while her husband is a driver. Eunice enjoys spending time with friends and watching her daughter play with the other children in the community.

Eunice has a severe form of oligohydromnios, a condition characterized by a deficiency of amniotic fluid. She also delivered her first child through C-section. For these reasons, her doctors consider her pregnancy to be high-risk. They recommend that she receive medical attention before, during, and after labor to ensure a safe delivery. On February 6, she will begin to receive supplements and attend antenatal checkups and health education classes. She will deliver her baby in the hospital, where she will undergo a C-section. After birth, Eunice and her baby will be monitored by the hospital staff.

Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is requesting $241 to help Eunice safely deliver her baby.

Eunice is looking forward to giving birth to a healthy child. She says, “Thank you so much for the help with my safe delivery.”

Khu

Khu is a 42-year-old who lives with his three sisters and two nieces in a refugee camp. In February, he had to flee across the border from Karen State in Burma due to fighting around his village. His two younger sisters are students, while his other sister is currently working as an agricultural day laborer since Khu cannot work since his accident. He looks after his two nieces who are too young to go to school. In March, Khu was working on a local farm and was struck on the right forearm by a tire chain from an exploding tractor tire he was filling. After unsuccessfully trying for two months to heal his arm with blessed oil and turmeric paste, he sought medical help and was referred to Mae Sot hospital, where it was determined that he needs surgery for a broken forearm bone. Currently, Khu cannot lift up his right arm and cannot grab any objects with his right hand. He cannot move his right arm because of the pain. He has taken pain medicine since his accident to control the pain and he is not able to work. With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Khu will undergo surgery to reset his fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for June 1st and will cost $1,500. This procedure will help him regain use of his right arm so that he can go back to work and earn a living to support himself and his family. Khu said, “Everyone told me that I am very lucky that only my arm was injured. I feel very sad that I cannot work and that I have to depend on my sister’s income. She has to work hard since my accident. I hope I will get better soon so that I can find work again.”
