Tumushabe is a 31-year-old small scale farmer. She completed the third grade in primary school, but shared with us that she left school due to a lack of financial support for school fees. Her husband is a laborer who does work around their village. They own a three-room semi-permanent house for shelter. During her free time, she enjoys working on her farm.
Tumushabe is currently expecting her third baby. Doctors recommend that she deliver her baby via c-section, because she sadly lost her first two children shortly after birth. If not treated through a c-section, Tumushabe’s uterus could rupture, putting her and the baby at risk. A c-section will allow doctors to better ensure the safety of both mother and child. Tumushabe and her husband hope and pray that they may finally have a healthy child who will survive and grow up.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Tumushabe to undergo a c-section on May 19th. Now, Tumushabe needs $207 to fund the procedure.
Tumushabe shared with us, “I pray for a successful surgery.”
