Jane received surgery to treat uterine fibroids.

According to our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, Jane’s total abdominal hysterectomy was successful. Jane “is recovering well and was all smiles as she went home. Jane will now be able to work at her tailoring business and fend for her family.”

Jane shares, “I can’t believe that now I am well. I have lived with this problem for many years just because I could not raise money for surgery. May God bless Watsi for assisting me!”

“Since 2010, Jane has been suffering from this condition. She went to a hospital and a scan was done which showed she has uterine fibroids and required surgery to treat,” says our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). “However, Jane did not have money for treatment.”

44-year-old Jane is a single mother of three children from Kenya. She works as a tailor, but her small income is not enough to cover any additional expenses beyond basic needs.

Jane needs a total abdominal hysterectomy to treat her uterine fibroids, and we can help make it possible. The surgery will cost $790. Included in the cost is Jane’s hospital stay, meals, laboratory testing, imaging, and anesthesia.

“I have been in pain for a long time and it is having a negative effect on my small business,” Jane shares. “I look forward to the day when I will get well and be able to work and support my family.”

Loy

Loy is a 46-year-old small scale farmer and a strong mother to her five children who range from the ages of 21 to 11 years old. Due to difficult finances and lack of resources, all of Loy's children have received a partial primary school education at various levels. Loy and her husband earn their income by farming, and their family lives together in a four-room mud house for shelter. Four months ago, Loy began experiencing severe lower abdominal pains that have caused her many sleepless nights. She believes that her uterus is very weak because she had a number of complicated deliveries when she gave birth to her children. She visited a doctor in March and was given temporary medication to help ease the pain and discomfort. Months later, she can now no longer sleep comfortably, and has had to completely stop farming due to the pain. Loy has been diagnosed with chronic pelvic inflammatory disease and needs to undergo a hysterectomy, the surgical removal of the uterus, in order to treat her condition. Fortunately, on May 13th, Loy will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center, Rushoroza Hospital. Once recovered, Loy will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain and continue on with her farming in order to take care of her family. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $319 to help fund this surgery. Loy says, “I can no longer practice farming in my current condition and my family depends on farming. I hope to get well through surgery so that I may be able once again take better care of my family.”
