Generious is an outgoing, articulate, and confident lady in her 50s from Uganda. She has been a widow for the last 18 years but has managed to raise and support all her children with the income she earns from farming. She is a mother to four children: three daughters and one son. Two of her daughters are married and work as teachers, while the youngest is still in school. Her son is a farmer. Education was not highly valued in their generational era, so Generious did not receive any formal education. In her free time, she is often at home engaged in domestic chores such as cooking, cleaning, and washing. Her primary source of income is farming, where she predominantly grows food crops to feed her family and sells the surplus for additional income. Generious sought medical attention due to a swelling on her left leg, which she has been experiencing for a year. This condition causes numbness and tingling, paralysis, and pain when walking. After consulting with a doctor, she was advised to undergo a scan, which revealed a ganglionic cyst. The recommended treatment is excision; however, she is unable to raise the funds needed for the surgery and, therefore, appeals for your support. Generious traveled to our medical partner's care center to receive treatment. On November 22, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Generious needs help to raise $137 to fund this procedure. Generious says, “I am passing through a lot of pain but hope with your support, I will be operated on and will surely get well.”
