Twinomuhangi is a 63-year-old woman from Uganda. She and her husband are farmers and they have five children who are all married.
For a year, Twinomuhangi has experienced postmenopausal bleeding, abdominal pain, and discomfort. She was diagnosed with partial uterine prolapse with an anterior cystocele. Because of her condition, she has difficulty farming.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Twinomuhangi receive treatment. On June 9th, she will undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus, at AMH’s care center. Now, AMH is requesting $219 to fund Twinomuhangi’s procedure. Once recovered, she will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Twinomuhangi shared, “I hope to get treated, heal and continue with farming because it’s only this condition that has stopped me from working.”
