Komugisha is a 47-year-old businesswoman from Uganda. She is a single mother to two children who are both still in school - one is in senior three, while the other is in senior six. She separated with her husband due to domestic violence problems. Komugisha currently earns a living from selling secondhand clothes, but also does farming sometimes to help support her children with school fees.
For the last month, Komugisha has had a growing mass on the inside of her lower lip. It causes her pain and discomfort with daily activities like eating and talking.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Komugisha receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo a mass excision procedure on January 12th at our medical partner’s care center. Surgeons will remove the mass from her lip. This procedure will cost $196, and she needs help raising money.
Komugisha shared, “I have faith and believe that my surgery will be a success.”
