Medius is a 33-year-old mother from Uganda. She has two children, and is pregnant with her third. Both her children attend primary school; the eldest is in fourth grade and the youngest is in first grade.
Medius and her husband Emmy are both teachers, but it is still challenging for them to make enough money to support their family and send their children to school. Recently, Medius and her husband obtained a loan to start a poultry project for an extra source of income, but the chicks have not grown enough to be sold.
During her free time, Medius likes helping her children in doing their homework and listen to them share about what they learned at school. She hopes that her children will obtain an education and become doctors in her community.
Both Medius’ previous deliveries were by C-section, and she will need a C-section with this delivery as well. Medius has felt fatigued during the last month of her pregnancy and has come to the mother’s hospital to wait for her delivery.
For $258, Medius will undergo the C-section and antenatal care she needs for a safe delivery. After her surgery, she hopes to continue teaching and will be strong enough to look after her new poultry farm as the chicken grow.
“I want to thank the donors for being merciful and offering to lend a hand. May God bless you,” shared Medius.
