Florah is a primary school teacher and a 38-year-old mother who is expecting a new baby. Her other children are all in school and her husband is also a primary school teacher. Their salary is limited to meet their family’s day-to-day needs, education fees, and healthcare costs. Florah shared with us that during her free time, she enjoys teaching and tending to her family.

Florah’s doctors recommend that she deliver via a caesarean section. If she attempts to deliver vaginally, Florah will be at risk of uterine rupture which might be dangerous to her and the unborn child.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Florah undergo a C-Section on October 18th. This procedure will cost $252, and Florah needs your support.

Florah says: “I thought I would save some money for my surgery since I knew it was a must to deliver by C-section but due to overwhelming expenditure at home, I was unable. I kindly ask for your support.”

Regina

Regina is a 13-year-old girl from Kenya. She is the secondborn in a family of three children. Her parents separated a few years back, and she and all of her siblings currently live with their mother in their ancestral home. Regina’s mother practices small-scale farming to provide food for their family. Her mother shares that she previously ran a small kiosk in their hometown where she sold fruits, but she has been unable to sustain the business since Regina fell sick in June. They currently rely on Regina’s grandmother to help support them. Regina has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. As a result of her condition, Regina has been experiencing fevers and severe headaches. Although she and her family have been to different hospitals seeking treatment, they have not seen much change in her condition. Fortunately, they were referred to our medical partner's care center, BethanyKids Kijabe Hospital, where she will undergo surgery to treat her hydrocephalus. Without treatment, Regina would experience severe physical and developmental delays. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $720 to cover the cost of surgery for Regina. The procedure is scheduled to take place on August 17th and will drain the excess fluid from Regina's brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve her quality of life. With proper treatment, Regina will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young girl. Regina’s mother says, “I am not happy that my child is in this condition. I want her to get well and bring back my happiness.”
