Zipora is a 17-year-old woman from Uganda. She supports her mother by harvesting beans, maize, cassava, and potatoes from their small farm. She also sells goods, such as clothes, soap, and salt, at the local market. Finally, Zipora weaves mats for bedding.

When Zipora became pregnant with her first child, her doctors considered the pregnancy to be high-risk, and they expected complications.

Zipora’s delivery date was October 18, 2016. Our medical partner, the Kellermann Foundation, provided experienced surgeons and the necessary medications to ensure Zipora would return home with a healthy newborn. Now, she needs help to pay her $241 healthcare costs.

In the future, Zipora hopes to work hard and educate her baby.

Joy, Zipora’s mother, shares, “I wish to thank all donors who are supporting us during this very needy time, especially for my daughter’s safe delivery.”
