Tumuramye is a farmer from Uganda. She is a widow and a mother to one who had reached senior high school but then dropped from school due to lack of funds and is at home helping with farming now. Tumuramye lost her husband 12 years ago and has struggled to bring up her child alone. She earns a living from small-scale farming and often time works in other people’s garden in case she needs urgent money to provide to her child.
For some time now, Tumuramye has been experiencing severe lower abdominal pain and discomfort, abnormal per vaginal discharge and bleeding. She has been diagnosed with cervical polyp. 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 Tumuramye’s surgery. On July 14th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Tumuramye will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Tumuramye shared: “I know once my surgery goes on well, I will regain my health and resume with farming.”
