Evalyne is a 42-year-old woman from Uganda. She and her husband practice small-scale farming to provide for their family. They have four children, all of whom are in school. Evalyne shared that she attended school through primary seven but was unable to continue due to the school fees.
Evalyne has been experiencing a mass for the past twelve years that recently became very painful and began increasing in size. Her symptoms make it hard for her to sleep and are negatively impacting her quality of life. She traveled to our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), for treatment. On February 28th, surgeons at AMH’s care center will remove the mass. AMH is requesting $188 to fund Evalyne’s procedure.
Evalyne said: “I look forward to receiving treatment for my condition so that I can live better and resume my farming.”
