Kakuba is a farmer from Uganda. She is married and a mother to five children; all married but practicing small scale farming. Her elderly husband also practices domestic small scale farming as well as her for only home consumption and some supplies sold for home maintenance.
Six years ago, Kakuba has been experiencing lower abdominal pain and epigastric pain. She has been diagnosed with Cervical polyp. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $208 to fund Kakuba’s surgery. On November 19th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Kakuba will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Kakuba says, “I pray that my condition is relived so that I can continue supporting my family and practicing cultivation as well.”
