Kabonesa did not receive surgery as planned.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, explains: “Kabonesa was to have Cystocele Anterior Colporrhaphy (Uterine Prolapse repair) but she was found with chest infection. Her surgery was postponed until she finishes treatment for the infection. Surgery was rescheduled on Tuesday 19th January 2016 and informed through Kabonesa’s son (we could not get her on phone directly) but she didn’t show up. When contacted again on 27th January 2016 Kabonesa said she had surgery at a different hospital. She therefore no longer needed treatment.”

Kabonesa is a 52-year-old mother living in Uganda. She has seven children and independently provides for them by working as a casual laborer, often by gardening.

According to our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), Kabonesa has uterine prolapse. This occurs when the muscles or ligaments supporting the uterus weaken and the uterus then slips out of its normal position.

“Kabonesa presented with six years of on and off uterine prolapse that is associated with lower abdominal pain,” explains AMHF. If she is not treated, AMHF says that she is at high risk for infection.

Due to lack of funds, Kabonesa was previously unable to seek medical help. Instead, she has been using herbal remedies to no avail.

For $280, Kabonesa will receive five days of hospital care. While there, she will undergo surgery to repair her uterus, placing it back into its correct position.

“After a uterine prolapse repair, Kabonesa will have an improved quality of life,” AMHF states.

Kabonesa looks forward to regaining her her strength so that she can continue working to support her children. She shares, “I am sure with your help, I will be well again.”
