Mildren is a 52-year-old woman from Uganda. She enjoys listening to the radio and spending time with her 21 grandchildren. She also likes to spend time in her small garden tending to the millets and peas, though she is not currently able to engage in such work.
Ever since the delivery of her first child 39 years ago, Mildren has been suffering from a pelvic organ prolapse. Having delivered six more children since then, her condition has grown worse and worse. She is now in near-constant pain and cannot lift anything without suffering blood loss and incontinence. Doctors have recommended a total hysterectomy and colporrhaphy.
Our medical partner, The Kellerman Foundation, is requesting $321 to fund Mildren’s surgery. She is scheduled for treatment on October 30 at our medical partner’s care center, Bwindi Community Hospital. After treatment, she looks forward to being with her family and working again.
“I thank all the donors for their help,” says Mildren. “It is a great blessing.”
