Tugabirwe is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is married with five children, all who are casual workers and one of whom is married.
Four months ago, Tugabirwe began to experience vaginal bleeding and abdominal pain. She has been diagnosed with cervical polyps. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Tugabirwe’s surgery. On July 21st, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Tugabirwe will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Tugabirwe shared, “I hope that when this condition of mine is relived, I will get better and be able to continue farming to support my family.”
