Quinter is half-way through her pregnancy and her fourth child is due to be born in the middle of this year. Like so many Kenyans, Quinter and her family are farmers, growing corn and sugar cane to sell for a tiny income to support their family. Quinter has 3 healthy children and she hopes that her fourth baby will be the same way.

Quinter is experiencing chronic nausea and abdominal pain associated with her pregnancy and she cannot afford the professional help or medications that could ease her discomfort. For just $215, the Lwala hospital can provide Quinter with pre-natal care, a safe delivery for her baby and post-natal checkups for her and her child.

Loy

Loy is a 46-year-old small scale farmer and a strong mother to her five children who range from the ages of 21 to 11 years old. Due to difficult finances and lack of resources, all of Loy's children have received a partial primary school education at various levels. Loy and her husband earn their income by farming, and their family lives together in a four-room mud house for shelter. Four months ago, Loy began experiencing severe lower abdominal pains that have caused her many sleepless nights. She believes that her uterus is very weak because she had a number of complicated deliveries when she gave birth to her children. She visited a doctor in March and was given temporary medication to help ease the pain and discomfort. Months later, she can now no longer sleep comfortably, and has had to completely stop farming due to the pain. Loy has been diagnosed with chronic pelvic inflammatory disease and needs to undergo a hysterectomy, the surgical removal of the uterus, in order to treat her condition. Fortunately, on May 13th, Loy will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center, Rushoroza Hospital. Once recovered, Loy will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain and continue on with her farming in order to take care of her family. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $319 to help fund this surgery. Loy says, “I can no longer practice farming in my current condition and my family depends on farming. I hope to get well through surgery so that I may be able once again take better care of my family.”
