Caroline is a 40-year-old farmer and mother of four. Her oldest child works in a salon and helps pay the school fees for her younger siblings, who are still studying. Caroline and her husband are both small-scale farmers. They shared with us that they work hard and their income is just enough to provide for the family’s basic needs.
Caroline is experiencing a mass that causes her pain and discomfort. She visited a healthcare center near her home, but the consultation fee was beyond her financial capability. After a friend referred her to the hospital of our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), Caroline traveled to receive treatment. On November 12th, surgeons will remove the mass. AMH is requesting $188 to fund Caroline’s procedure.
Caroline shared, “This condition has caused a lot of discomforts and made me lose my self-esteem. I will be delighted to go back to my old self.”
