Kabubirigi is an older widow from Uganda, with her husband passing away twenty years ago. She has four children and all are now married. They all are small-scale farmers as they never studied because there was no money to aid their education. Kabubirigi also does some farming although she said she is too old to do well in her gardens.
Kabubirigi reported to our Medical Partner’s Care Center with multiple painful and progressive swellings in her right axilla for over two years. She is unable to raise her arm up and doesn’t move it because of pain and disfigurement that is around the affected area.
Kabubirigi traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On May 19th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Kabubirigi needs help to raise $206 to fund this procedure.
Kabubirigi said: “I am so glad as I have heard that Watsi donors may support my surgery because I never had any money and I really hope to get better after surgery.”
