June 8, 2020

Twamubona is a 50-year-old mother of four, and her husband passed away in February 2019. Her children have not been able to continue with schooling so as they are now older, they still earn limited income.

Twamubona developed a small, painless, movable (under the skin) swelling 10 years ago that has progressively increased in size over time. She worries to cover her head 24/7, especially when she is in public places or public and communal gatherings. She shared that she feels uncomfortable and inferior most of the time and has come to Rushoroza Hospital to seek medical advice.

Twamubona is a small-scale farmer who produces enough vegetables for home consumption. She said, “The swelling greatly affects my social life. After the treatment, I will be able to comfortably interact with others in our village and therefore I will be able to learn new ideas that may help me to develop personally; including physically, mentally, and financially.”
