Tumwesigye is 77 years old. She is a mother of seven children, four boys and three girls, all of whom are casual farmers. Tumwesigye lives with her youngest, a son, who provides her with all basic needs.
Tumwesigye developed an uncomfortable gynecological condition about three years ago. She is unable to bend over or work.
Tumwesigye’s son took her to a clinic, where she was advised to go to a hospital for proper management. Knowing she could not afford hospital care, she resorted to using herbs, which didn’t improve her condition. Fortunately, she was referred to our medical partner’s care center, Holy Family Virika Hospital, by a neighbor who is the mother of the gynecologist there.
Tumwesigye will undergo gynecological surgery on April 18. She hopes to regain her strength and feel comfortable again. First, she needs help to raise $287. Let’s help Tumwesigye get healthy!
