Meet Tuhangirwe, a 38 year old business woman, living in Uganda with her husband and four children. While Tuhangirwe holds a degree in arts in education, she lost her teaching job as a result of the Covid-19 lockdown. She opened up a small retail shop, while her husband works as a farmer. Their income is limited due to the unstable weather patterns, and the weak economic climate.
Tuhangirwe is currently expecting a baby. Because of the risks from her previous deliveries, her doctors are recommending that she deliver her new baby via a C-section in order to ensure the safety and well being of both Tuhangirwe and her child.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Tuhangirwe undergo a C-Section on September 27th, at Karoli Lwanga Hospital, Nyakibale. The C-Section will cost $252, and Tuhangirwe needs your support, to fund this procedure.
Tuhangirwe says: “With your support, I expect the best of my surgery and hope to continue with my business to sustain my family.”
