October 23, 2019

Kenyonyozi has lived with mass on her vagina for the past three years. This mass bleeds and protrudes whenever she walks thus making her movements uncomfortable. She has had a poor quality of life due to this condition and if not treated complications like anemia may occur.

Kenyonyozi had been to the hospital and was diagnosed with cystocele. The doctors recommended surgical treatment but since was unable to get surgery as she had no money. She continued to live with her condition. Having heard of the SAFE surgical program at Nyakibale, she decided to come see if there is a possibility for support if possible. She was diagnosed with cystocele, recommended to undergo colporrhaphy treatment and was admitted to the SAFE program for support for a better quality of health.

Kenyonyozi is 69 years old married mother to eight children. Six daughters married and two sons who are causal labours. Her husband is a bedridden elderly man who can’t do any work due to old age. Kenyonyozi works as a small scale farmer but has recently stopped because of her condition. This has hindered her income and she can’t afford the costs of her surgery.

Kenyonyozi says, “I hope to get better after surgery and continue with cultivation.”

Vivian

Vivian is a student from Kenya. She is eight years old girl and the firstborn child in a family of two children. Vivian is a friendly and hard working girl both at school and at home. She is currently in class four, Vivian loves to help her mother with house chores and she always wants to learn new things. Her parents depend on farming to care for the family. One evening in October, Vivian had been left at home with her younger brother as their parents went to work on their farm. As it was getting dark and their parents had not got back home, Vivian decided to boil water and give her younger brother a bath. She had not done it before but seeing how late it had gotten, she thought she could help her mother by giving her young brother a bath. As she was trying to take the pot from the fire her cloth caught fire in the process, as she was screaming and trying to take her clothes off. A neighbor came to her rescue and saved her. Her parents were called and she was rushed to a hospital. Her wounds were attended to at the hospital and over a couple of weeks they got better. But soon her mother noticed she had a contracture under her right armpit. The contracture is making it difficult to raise her arm. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Vivian receive treatment. On November 15th, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help her use her arm easily again. Now, she needs help to fund this $608 procedure. Vivian’s mother says, “My daughter is now limited in her daily life activities due to the contracture on her arm please help treat her.”
