Komugisha is a farmer who has had troubling symptoms and pain for the past year. She had not been to any hospital previously, but when she came to Nyakibale Hospital, she was diagnosed with uterine fibroids and was advised to undergo surgery.
Komugasho shared that it has been hard for her to bend or stand for extended time periods, ultimately affecting her time on the farm. Her desire is to have her condition treated but she is afraid of the cost of surgery. As the mother of six, her and her husband’s combined income are only sufficient to meet their minimum daily needs.
On May 11th, she’ll undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Komugisha will be able to resume her daily activities and finally be free of pain.
Komugisha shared, “I really beg for your support because it’s my only hope of receiving my surgery since I can’t afford it on my own. I hope to resume with farming once I have fully recovered to sustain my family.”
