Betty is a 26-year-old mother of three from Uganda. During her free time, Betty enjoys listening to gospel music and radio programs about crime prevention.
In August of this year, Betty was in labor for three days without medical supervision. Eventually, she was rushed to the hospital to undergo a C-section. As a result of this delivery, Betty developed an abnormal condition in a sensitive area.
Betty and her husband, Isaac, are subsistence farmers, growing maize, sim sim, millet, and soya beans. Betty’s condition has affected her ability to work and join others in the community.
On October 25, 2016, doctors performed a repair surgery. Now, Betty needs help to pay for this $547 procedure.
When she recovers, Betty hopes to make pan cakes to sell at the local market. She also plans to walk her children to school. Betty dreams of taking tailoring classes, so that she can craft clothes and uniforms for children in her community.
“I want to thank Watsi for this opportunity to have my health restored, and I wish to thank the donors for making it possible for me to get this operation,” says Betty. “I pray that I will get better after surgery, gain my ability, and continue with my work.”
