Kyomukama

Kyomukama is 50-year-old small scale farmer and a mother to three sons, all whom are still studying in school. She proudly shared that one is at the university in his third year, another one in his first year, and the last one has just completed senior four in school. All of their schooling has been supported by their uncle, who adopted them, as Kyomukama's husband passed away in 2004. Kyomukama first felt pain on her lower abdomen a while ago, but was not overly concerned at the time. She went to a clinic and was given some supportive treatment, which did not completely relieve her of her condition. As her condition got worse, Kyomukama began experiencing other troubling symptoms including pain and discomfort. Due to excessive bleeding, she often felt fatigued or experiences brain fog temporarily. Upon visiting our medical partner's care center, Kyomukama was diagnosed with a uterine myoma, also known as a non-cancerous tumor. 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 Kyomukama's surgery. On May 25th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center. Once recovered, Kyomukama will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Kyomukama shared, “I hope that once I have undergone operation, my health problem will be solved and I will be able to get back to my activities like my farming with ease.”

James

James is former motorbike taxi driver from Kenya. He's married and is the father of two children 13 and 6 years old. James' wife is works part-time on a rice farm in their hometown. The family currently lives in a rental house paid for by their local church pastor. In November 2017, James was in a motorbike accident. Due to the accident, he lost his job, and he shared that his life became one revolving around experiencing pain and constant hospital visits. He underwent surgery on his broken leg in a nearby health facility in his hometown. Following the procedure he had a challenging recovery due to infections, causing him sleepless nights and visits to different healthcare facilities. James was finally referred to our medical partner's care center Kijabe Hospital where he underwent several treatments in May. James returned home but later came back to the hospital with a wounded leg that was in bad shape with an exposed bone. The doctors originally admitted James for repair surgery, but determined he needed a below-knee amputation which took place in mid-June. James still experiences a lot of pain, so the surgeon recommend he undergo another round of intense debridement in the amputated area to remove his damaged tissue and help him to finally heal. James has national health insurance, which supported his two major surgeries, but his coverage has been depleted and will not support the care he needs now. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping James receive treatment. On June 25th, surgeons will perform a debridement and skin graft procedure to prevent the spread of infection and speed up his recovery. Now, James needs help to fund this $1,185 procedure. James wishes to be free from pain, “I, unfortunately, lost my leg due to a sudden amputation, and I am still in shock. I will never be able to use both legs again. I am still in a lot of pain and the wound needs another procedure for me to be well. I need to get out of the hospital and figure out how to take care of my family with my current condition.”
