Jane received treatment for her uterine fibroids.

“Jane successfully underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy to treat uterine fibroids,” says our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation. “She is now free from the pain, bleeding and risk of anaemia. Jane will eventually be able to work again.”

Jane adds: “I am very grateful to God for the success of this surgery. I pray that God may bless Watsi and all those who assisted me.”

Meet 53-year-old Jane from Kenya, the first born in a family of eight children. Jane has uterine fibroids, or noncancerous growths within the uterine tissue.

“For a period of about four years now, Jane has had backaches and increased bleeding,” reports our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). “This condition has made Jane stop working, and it is hard for her to participate in social activities.”

“If not operated on, Jane will continue to suffer pain and have bleeding, which could lead to anemia and other complications,” explains AMHF.

With $790 in funding, Jane can receive a total abdominal hysterectomy to remove her uterus and resolve her painful symptoms. This cost includes surgical supplies, medical staff fees, hospital supplies, medication, and laboratory work.

AMHF says, “We expect that after a total abdominal hysterectomy, Jane will be well again. She will be free from the pain, bleeding, and risk of anemia, and will be able to work again.”

Jane is eager to regain her health and move forward with her life. She shares, “My hope now is to get relief from the pain and bleeding so I can regain my normal life.”

Sreyna

Sreyna is a 9-year-old girl who is living with her grandmother. Sreyna's mother works in a garment factory in another province, and sends money to Sreyna's grandmother for her care. Sreyna enjoys school, and is hoping to become an accountant. She also likes playing with her friends, reading, painting, and watching cartoons, and her favorite meal is a traditional Khmer noodle dish that her grandmother makes for her. In June 2021, Sreyna was hit by a car while riding her bike home from school, and her left leg was severely injured. Her family took her to a local hospital, where she received medical care and a skin graft. A year later, as a result of her injury and treatment, Sreyna's left leg is shorter than her right leg, she has limited range of motion of her ankle, and she has a large scar. She has difficulty walking, and she can't keep up with her friends when running and playing. Her grandmother shared that she is worried it is also impacting her confidence. A neighbor suggested our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre, for treatment so Sreyna and her grandmother traveled there hoping for care. Now surgeons plan to do a series of procedures on Sreyna's leg, which should enable her to walk and run and to keep up with her friends when they play. They are raising $487 to fund Sreyna's medical care, which is scheduled for May 12th at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre. Sreyna's grandmother said: "I hope Sreyna's leg will be fixed so she can walk without a limp and be active like other children."
