Deziranta is a 48-year-old farmer. She is a mother of three daughters who are all married and working as farmers. She lost her husband in 2020 to kidney disease. Despite her early love for school, Deziranta had to drop out after completing 7th grade due to lack of school fees. Currently, she practices farming for her livelihood and occasionally works in other people’s gardens where she is paid 5,000 Ugandan Shillings. She lives in a two-roomed muddy semi-permanent house in Buhunga Rukungiri District in Southwestern Uganda.
Six years ago, Deziranta developed a painful swelling on her back. This swelling causes her sleepless nights as she cannot sleep on her back. She also experiences paralysis of the back and cannot lift or carry loads. Her symptoms limit her from activities she would comfortably do before, which led her to seek medical attention.
Deziranta traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 28th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Deziranta needs help to raise $137 to fund this procedure.
Deziranta says “I beg for your mercy for support to make my surgery possible. Without it, I won’t ever get a chance to undergo my surgery due to limited finances.”
