“Chinyere is a friendly young lady and the oldest in a family of six,” reports our medical partner, Hope for West Africa (HFWA). “She likes reading and is currently studying to be a nurse.”

Meet 28-year-old Chinyere from West Africa. Chinyere has a uterine fibroid, a noncancerous growth that develops from the smooth muscular tissue of the uterus. She has experienced “bleeding which can be heavy enough to cause anemia, and painful, prolonged periods which can last for several days,” explains HFWA. “The pain is so severe that she doesn’t go to school whenever it starts.”

Chinyere needs surgery to treat her condition, but “her parents are petty traders and they cannot afford the amount that the surgery will cost.” With $1500 in funding, Chinyere can undergo a procedure to remove the fibroid and fully resolve her painful symptoms. This cost subsidizes labs, radiology, surgical costs, rehabilitation, medication, travel, and lodging.

“The surgery will allow Chinyere to concentrate on her studies,” continues HFWA. “She will have less heavy bleeding that often times does not allow her to go to school and mix with others.”

HFWA adds, “Chinyere is looking forward to concentrate on her studies and assist her parents in their petty business after the surgery.”
