Busingye is an assistant lecturer and a mother of four. All of her children a still in school: Her first born is 21 years old and in secondary school class six, the second born is 19 years old and in secondary school class four, the third born is 15 years old and in secondary school class two, while her last born is seven years old and in primary school class two. She is an assistant lecturer at Uganda college of commerce while her husband is a secondary school teacher. Their main struggle currently is school fees because their salaries cannot solely take care of the fees and provide other family basic needs.
In recent months, Busingye has been experiencing a lot of pain during menstruation and when urinating, and also having abdominal pains and backache. She has now been diagnosed with fibroids. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $228 to fund Busingye’s surgery. On September 8th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Busingye will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain and her quality of life will improve.
Busingye says, “I hope to live a normal life again after the surgery since I will be able to resume comfortably my normal duties as an assistant lecturer.”
