Naturinda is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is a mother of eight children.
For four years, Naturinda has been experiencing lower abdominal pain. She has been diagnosed with chronic pelvic inflammatory disease. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $208 to fund Naturinda’s surgery. On August 2, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Naturinda will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Naturinda says, “I hope to continue with cultivation as its only way of surviving and care for my family after surgery.”
