Kasande is a farmer from Uganda. She is a married mother to five children, including one girl who is still in school. Two of her sons are teachers and the other two are still in school. She dropped out of school at sixth grade due to lack of school fees and began farming. She currently earns a living from her small banana and coffee plantation which she operates together with her husband.
For some time now, Kasande has been experiencing bleeding, severe backaches, and lower abdominal pain. She has been diagnosed with cervical polyp and needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $219 to fund Kasande’s surgery. On July 21st, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Kasande will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Kasande says: “I expect to get a new life after my surgery and hope to resume with farming after I have recovered.”
