Joyce is a 28-year-old woman from Kenya. She is married, and they have two children. Joyce and her husband are small-scale farmers.
Since March 2018, Joyce has been experiencing abdominal pains. She has been visiting different health facilities seeking treatment, and she was diagnosed with cholelithiasis and advised to have surgery.
She decided to come to Nazareth Hospital, our medical partner’s care center, and a scan confirmed she has cholelithiasis. If not treated, Joyce will continue to experience pain and may experience complications, such obstruction of the bile duct or inflammation of the gall bladder.
Fortunately, abdominal surgery is now scheduled for October 23. Joyce needs help raising $750 to fund this procedure.
“This pain is becoming unbearable and I have children whom to take care of. I am kindly requesting for help so that I can be well again to care for my family,” says Joyce.
