Bonny is a 45-year-old woman that lives in Uganda with her husband and five children. Her children are all in school, and her husband runs a small farm. The family of seven currently lives in a two-bedroom house as they are trying to save money for a larger, permanent home.
For two years, Bonny has been experiencing extreme pain and fatigue. She has been diagnosed with adenomyosis, a condition in which the inner lining of the uterus grows into the muscle wall of the uterus resulting in painful bleeding. Her symptoms have prevented her from working on the family farm, despite this being their sole source of income.
She needs to undergo a hysterectomy - a procedure in which her doctors will remove her uterus. Fortunately, on January 19th, she will undergo surgery at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH). Once recovered, Bonny will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Bonny is requesting $219 to fund this procedure.
Bonny says, “I have had bad moments living with this condition, but I request you to consider me to have my health restored so that I can live a better life through farming.”
