Sarah is a maize farmer from Uganda. She has been blessed with three children, ranging from 25 to 4 years old. Sarah shared with us that her husband died in 2008 due to HIV/AIDS. Since then, Sarah has been taking care of her children and providing them with basic needs and education through the farming she does.
Since eight years ago, Sarah has been experiencing pain and abdominal bleeding. She has now been diagnosed with Uterine Leiomyomas and needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $662 to fund Sarah’s surgery. On September 8th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Sarah will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Sarah shared with us, “I am optimistic and hopeful that my surgery will be successful, I have spoken to a few people who have had a hysterectomy and they have all said they are glad they have had it done.”
