Brenda is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is the second-born in a family of five siblings, all of whom are married and self-employed. Brenda’s husband works as a builder in the local community, earning a modest income to cover their family’s essential needs. Brenda completed her education up to secondary class four and pursued training and certification as an account assistant. However, she was unable to find a job in this field and had to switch to farming to ensure their family’s food security. During her free time, Brenda enjoys spending time with her family.
Brenda is currently expecting her third child and has received a full package of antenatal care from our medical partner’s care center. Her doctors recommended that she deliver via a cesarean section because of two previous scars, as she delivered her first and second child through emergency C-sections. By undergoing a C-section to deliver her new baby, the doctors can ensure the safety of both mother and child.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Brenda undergo a C-Section on October 5th. This procedure will cost $252.
Brenda said, “I will be glad when am assisted to deliver my baby for a good pregnancy outcome, and I can resume farming for the betterment of my family.”
