Justine is a young businesswoman. She got married last year during the COVID-19 outbreak and buys and sells charcoal in small quantities to earn a living while her husband is a Boda Boda (motorcycle) driver who transports luggage around Kabale town in Uganda. They rent two rooms for shelter and are in the early stages of developing their family. During her free time, Justine enjoys singing in church whenever she goes to pray.
She is currently expecting her first child and has been having antenatal care at Rushoroza Hospital. Her doctors recommend that she deliver via a caesarean section because of severe oligohydramnios. This way, doctors can ensure the safety of both mother and child.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Justine undergo a C-Section on January 6th. This procedure will cost $214, and Justine needs your support.
Justine says, “I pray that I may have a successful surgery and get a chance to become a mother. I will continue with my usual business of buying and selling charcoal so that I may be able to assist my husband in developing our family.”
