Prudence is a teacher in a secondary school and last year was fortunate to be promoted to head teacher at the school. However, despite this achievement, she has found herself facing financial difficulties, exacerbated by the ongoing financial struggles within her own congregation, which has yet to recover from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Since three years ago, Prudence has been experiencing lower abdominal pain accompanied by a noticeable increase in abdominal pain. This debilitating condition has significantly hampered her ability to perform her duties at the school.
This uncertainty about her health has caused her significant distress, given that she cannot bear to wait any longer, having already endured three years of suffering. She has been diagnosed with multiple uterine myomas. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Prudence’s surgery. On September 16, she will undergo surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Prudence can resume her daily activities free of pain.
Prudence says, “I am so glad that I have finally found the donors here at Nyakibale Hospital and I request for any possible support from them so that my health is restored as I continue with my work of teaching.”
