Meet Peninah, a 32-year-old woman, living with her husband and two children. While Peninah worked hard to attain a degree in business management, she was unable to secure her hoped for job in banking when she graduated. Instead, she opened a small, retail store. Her husband works as a teacher in a private school, but his employer has not been paying him his full salary since the school reopened after the Covid lockdown was lifted, and now he has not been paid at all since March.

Peninah is pregnant with twins. Her doctors have advised her to deliver her twins by C-section, so as not to risk a uterine rupture or a post-term hemorrhage.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is here to help Peninah access the care that she needs. They are seeking funding of $252 for Peninah’s C-section, which is scheduled for June 14th, at Karoli Lwanga Hospital in Nyakibale.

Peninah says: “Things are a bit complicated for us financially. Affording our bill will be hard, but I hope that when given your support, I will be able to deliver safely.”
