Honest is a 32-year-old woman who lives with her husband and children in Uganda. She and her husband earn their income as farmers to support their children. She volunteers her time as a churchwarden, organizing or delivering sermons.
Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, tells us: “She is also an active member of her community’s family health organization, and helps other mothers better understand family planning and nutrition.”
Honest is pregnant with her fourth child, and has passed her due date. Her doctors estimated her baby will weigh about five kilograms (11 pounds). At that size, her doctors advised her to have a C-section to avoid complications associated with a high-risk natural delivery.
For $303, Honest can receive her C-section. The total cost covers the procedures, supplies, and five days of inpatient care. Honest’s family has already paid $4 towards the C-section, but needs financial assistance for the remainder.
With her C-section, Honest and her new baby will go through delivery and recovery safely. Honest is hopeful that her baby will grow up to be a teacher. The Kellermann Foundation tells us, “Honest gives thanks to God for the help from Watsi supporters, and hopes God blesses them.” Honest looks forward to raising her new baby and adding to her family.
