Grace is a 37-year-old woman from Uganda. She has seven children. Her oldest is at a technical college, and the other children attend a primary school. Grace and her husband farm their land and grow millet and peas to support the family. She attends church and enjoys singing hymns and songs. One of her greatest pleasures is spending time with her children and hearing their stories about school.
Since the birth of her first child 21 years ago, Grace has had gynecological symptoms. These symptoms have gradually intensified over the years with the birth of her other children. She is scheduled for a hysterectomy which should cure her symptoms.
Her condition makes it very difficult to perform day-to-day activities, such as farming, due to pain. She previously had surgery but the symptoms returned.
Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is requesting $321 to help fund Grace’s procedure, which is scheduled to occur at the beginning of November.
Grace looks forward to recovering from surgery and being able to farm, dig, and do her usual daily activities without inconvenience and pain from her prior symptoms. She said, “I would like to say a big thank you for all the help and what the donors have done for me. It is such a blessing.”
