June 8, 2020

Nimusiima is a 30 year old single mother to three children, all of whom are still in school. She separated with her husband because of her health condition leaving her with no support for her three children. She earns a living from selling second-hand clothes along the roadside but since she earns limited profit from the business, she at times does small-scale farming growing food crops to feed her children. When she separated with her husband, she had to rent a two-roomed house which she shares with her three daughters and rent is paid from the profits she earns after her sales.

Nimusiima came in to the hospital presenting with an unrepaired delivery episiotomy that she has had for the last two years. She has discomfort and incontinence. It has greatly affected her quality of life and her marriage.

Nimusiima had never been to any hospital for treatment for her condition due to limited finances but having heard over a radio health talk show about the hospital’s program and the surgical operation it supports, she decided to come and check if she could also be helped. Having reached here, she visited the gynaecologist who examined her recommended an anterior colporrhaphy and perinerraphy treatment to restore her quality of health.

Nimusiima shared: “I hope to get a better quality of life after my surgery and be free from this condition. I hope to resume working for the betterment of my children’s future.”
