Meet Selina, a 67-year-old small farmer from northern Uganda. Selina and her husband grow and sell beans, sorghum, and soy beans to support their seven children. Selina is also a potter and makes pots from locally-sourced clay.
Selina developed an utero-vaginal prolapse following the birth of her youngest child. Due to the sensitive nature of her condition, Selina shares that she has difficulty working on the farm and completing other daily activities. She is currently taking pain relief medication to manage her symptoms.
Selina will undergo a hysterectomy on October 31. Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is asking for donations in the amount of $321 to help fund Selina’s surgery.
“I would like to thank all the donors for their help. May God bless them,” says Selina.
