about Eunice's recovery.

June 8, 2022

Eunice is a mother of three and works as a farmer. Her husband operates a small shop. They work hard to earn enough for basic needs and school fees for their children.

Eunice is currently pregnant and her doctor has recommended a c-section to ensure a safe delivery since she is high-risk. Our medical partner is here to help. On June 9th, Eunice is scheduled to undergo a C-section at Karoli Lwanga Hospital in Nyakibale. African Mission Healthcare Foundation is seeking $252 to fund this procedure, which offers the best possible outcome for Eunice and her baby.

Eunice says: β€œThe little money we earn only passes through our hands trying to attain a living. We have quite a big family; sustaining it with such a low income is hard, and it’s the reason we request that you help fund my surgery.”

Gladys

Gladys is a strong, hardworking mother from Kenya who is raising her five children on her own. Her oldest child is 14 years old, while her youngest is only three. To support her family, she works as a casual laborer plucking tea. She currently lives in a single-room rental house, which costs Ksh.1200 (~10 USD) per month. Gladys shares that her income is inconsistent and not enough to cover her needed medical treatment. She also does not have active medical coverage and currently has a large accrued bill due to her recent hospital admission. Recently, Gladys was involved in a road traffic accident that caused several fractures. One of the fractures she sustained in this accident was of her left tibia. As a result of this injury, she is currently unable to walk. In order to properly heal her fracture, she must undergo an open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) procedure. She also has facial fractures, which will require another ORIF later the same week. However, undergoing an ORIF for her fractured tibia is the current priority. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On August 8th, Gladys will undergo fracture repair surgery so she can walk easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to fund this procedure. Gladys says, β€œI cannot walk and my face is in pain. I am the only breadwinner of the family, and I cannot work if my leg is broken. All my five children depend on me for upkeep and survival. I need this treatment to get back on my feet.”
