Kampire is a mother of two from rural Uganda. In 2014, she starting feeling lower abdominal pains. When her pains persisted and became severe, she went to Kabale Regional Hospital to seek medical advice. She was informed after a scan, that she had a bulky uterus and was given medication in the form of tablets to relieve her of the severe pain. This did not help her completely and she decided to come to Watsi’s Medical Partner Care Center Rushoroza Hospital to seek additional medical attention.
At Rushoroza, she was diagnosed with with pelvic inflammatory disease. If not treated, she will continue experiencing severe pain, which is keeping her from doing her normal duties.
Kampire is currently staying at her Aunt’s home. She has no considerable income-generating activity but earlier she was a businesswoman who dealt in selling and buying dry produce such as beans. Her husband was abroad for some time and recently separated.
Kampire told us, “May God have mercy on me and I get support for my surgery. After the surgery, I would be able to restart my dry produce business by working hard and acquiring an agricultural loan.”
