Tuhirirwe and her husband are small-scale farmers from Uganda. She is a mother to four children with two boys and two girls, all are married and are small scale farmers. She dropped school at primary six but never proceeded due to lack of school fees.
Three years ago, Tuhirirwe began experiencing abnormal abdominal pain. She has been diagnosed with cervical polyp, premalignant cervical lesion, and left oophritis. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Tuhirirwe’s surgery. On August 18th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Tuhirirwe will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Tuhirirwe says, “I hope that all will be well once I undergo surgery with your support. I expect better health and hope to resume with farming after I have fully recovered.”
