Moreen underwent a C-section and welcomed a baby boy.

Moreen delivered a baby boy! He was admitted to the special nursery to get healthy enough to go home with Moreen and meet his new family. He’s now recovered and healthy! Moreen was so happy to have her surgery made possible with support from donors and to be heading home with her new baby in good health.

Moreen says “I am so happy to see that am going home with a live baby and in good health. I never knew that such support could come my way and I was really worried about how I will pay my hospital bill. May God bless you my donors for what you’ve done for me.”

Moreen is a 35-year-old mother from Uganda. She has four children and is currently expecting her fifth. To support their family, Moreen runs a small retail shop, and her husband operates a motorcycle taxi.

Due to having a previous scar and a congenital condition that may cause complications during delivery, Moreen must deliver her child via a Caesarean section. This procedure will help ensure the safety of both Moreen and her child. However, due to financial constraints, she cannot afford to pay for the procedure.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Moreen undergo a C-Section on July 12th. This procedure will cost $252, and Moreen and her family need your support to help fund her care.

Moreen says, “When I am given your support, I hope to deliver well and I hope to go home with a live and healthy child.”

Titus

Titus is a hardworking 24-year-old from Kenya. He is the only child to his single mother, who sells tea and porridge at the market. Due to their financial situation, Titus was compelled to drop out of high school and do casual labor jobs to support his mother. Together with his mother, they live in his uncles’ home who is a small-scale farmer. Titus also helps his uncle with farm work. A month ago, Titus fell at work and his hand was cut by a sharp object. Titus went to a nearby facility where his wound was sutured because the fracture was open, and a splint was applied in order to stabilize the fracture. Now he cannot work using his hand and therefore he depends entirely on his mother. When he realized that there was no improvement of his injury, Titus visited a nearby facility where he was referred to our medical partner's care center Kapsowar Hospital. On physical examination, the surgeon told him that he required an urgent surgery in order to repair his tendon and fix his fracture which had taken time to heal. Titus has no medical insurance and is worried about how he can pay for the care he needs. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 27th, Titus will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. Titus will be able to go back to his work and continue to earn a living. He will be able to assist his mother. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $941 to fund this procedure. Titus says, “I get my income through working with my hands. Now that I cannot use them, I feel so bad. I don’t want to burden my mother who is also struggling. Kindly help me.”
