Monicah is a 52-year-old woman from Kenya. She lives on a small farm with her husband and three children. In her free time, she likes to read the Bible.
In late 2015, Monicah began to experience abnormal uterine bleeding. She was treated with antibiotics at a local clinic, which improved her symptoms for some time. In late 2016, she was referred to our medical partner’s care center, AIC Kapsowar Hospital. Medical staff diagnosed her with excessive uterine bleeding and recommended a total abdominal hysterectomy.
As a result of her condition, Monicah’s ability to work is highly limited. This means that their family has difficulty making ends meet. Monicah is looking forward to being able to better provide for her children after surgery.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $630 to cover the cost of the operation. Monicah is scheduled for treatment on March 28. She is expected to make a full recovery.
