Santrina is a 38-year-old nun. She has a certificate in records and information management, as well as is currently studying that same course now at a diploma level at Uganda Martyrs University in Kabale. Santrina’s parents are small-scale farmers, and, with grit and determination, Santrina has managed to construct them a two-room home.
Since 2016, Santrina has been experiencing severe pain in her lower abdomen. Santrina has since been diagnosed with Multiple Leiomyomas and needs to undergo a hysterectomy to prevent further complications.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Santrina raise $319 to fund this life altering surgery. On April 4th, Santrina will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Santrina will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Sister Arineitwe says, “I pray that I may get well through surgery because my health is deteriorating from time to time and I can no longer take on my studies comfortably. I hope to proceed with education after complete recovery.”
