Federesi is a subsistence farmer from Uganda. She is married and a mother of four living children. Federesi lost both her parents, while her husband has lost his father. She is the second last born in a family of thirteen children, but unfortunately, five of her siblings passed on. She studied up to primary six while her husband reached primary five. They all do small-scale farming to support their family. For five years, Federesi has been experiencing excessive bleeding, lower abdominal pain and backache. She has been diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia and endometrial carcinoma. She visited various health centres and was told her pain was due to fallopian tubes. Each time she visited the health centre, she was given medicine, but she did not get relief. On 18th October, she visited Good Samaritan Medical Center, where she was told that her condition needed surgery, but she was unable to pay for it. Her son, who works at Rwibaale Health Center, advised her to come to Rwibaale Hospital for help. Due to pain, she is unable to dig and walk long distances. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $253 to fund Federesi's surgery. On November 25TH, she will undergo gynecological surgery at Rwibaale Health Center. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully alleviate her symptoms. Federesi said,"I hope to get rid of pain and resume my duties of farming after surgery.’’
