Bulemu underwent gynecological surgery.

Bulemu’s uterine prolapse repair was a success. She will no longer experience pain, and she will be able to work in her gardens.

Bulemu says, “I feel fine and my heart is overjoyed because I have had a successful surgery. After recovery, I will be able to attend to my gardens so that I can get enough food for my family…I am very grateful to all the people who have paid for my surgery.”

Bulemu is a 67-year-old woman and mother of eight. She grows and sells food to provide for her three youngest children, who still live at home. She cares deeply for her children’s education and works hard to pay for their schooling.

In July of 2016, Bulemu began to feel discomfort in a sensitive area, which worsened over time. She began to experience abdominal pain and lose her appetite.

“I feel strange, and I am not comfortable going in public places,” she says.

After visiting a local health center, she was referred to our medical partner’s care center, Holy Family Virika Hospital, for diagnosis and treatment. Upon admittance, Bulemu was diagnosed with an abnormal uterine condition.

Bulemu is scheduled to undergo a repair surgery on December 15. Our medical partner is requesting $287 to cover the cost of medication, surgical supplies, and five nights of hospital stay. After surgery, Bulemu hopes to continue working hard to support her children’s education.
