Kezabu underwent gynecological surgery.

Kezabu’s uterine prolapse repair was a success. She is no longer at risk of getting infections. After recovery, she will be able to walk and work.

Kezabu says, “I feel fine. I am not feeling the swelling that I had. I am very happy and appreciative for the treatment I have received…I extend my gratitude to all the people who have contributed to the success of my surgery.”

Kezabu is a 37-year-old woman from Uganda. She is a single mother with five children.

Three years ago, while she was giving birth, she developed an uncomfortable condition in a sensitive area. She experiences urinary dysfunction and difficulty walking. This condition prevents her from working comfortably.

Kezabu reported her condition to her local hospital several times, but she was only given medication for a urinary tract infection. Her symptoms did not go away. Eventually, she came to our medial partner’s care center, Holy Family Virika Hospital, where she was diagnosed with a cystocele and advised to have surgery. On January 24, Kezabu will undergo a gynecological repair surgery.

To provide for herself and her family, Kezabu cooks and sells snacks. Recently, however, she has been unable to work. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $287 to fund her surgery.
