Fortunate is a 17-year-old young woman from Uganda. She is the first born in a family of seven. Her parents work as small farmers to support their family. Fortunate is in school and is expecting her first child.
Due to her young age, Fortunate’s pregnancy is considered high risk. As a result, she needs to be monitored closely in case she needs a Caesarean section. Beginning on June 22, Fortunate will be monitored at our medical partner’s care center, Bwindi Community Hospital. Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is asking for $241 to cover the cost of her treatment and ensure she has a safe delivery.
“I pray for the donors’ blessing because they are so generous,” says Fortunate’s mother, Catherine.”Thank you so much for helping with my daughter’s treatment.”
