Kurinampa is a 27-year-old farmer who is 36 weeks pregnant. She is the fifth child in her family and attended school through secondary grades. She and her husband practice subsistence farming, and they have two children. She hopes to deliver a healthy third child soon.

Kurinampa recently experienced discomfort and visited a local hospital. She was examined and learned that the baby is in breech position, and she was also diagnosed with placenta previa. Doctors recommend she have a C-Section to prevent complications and risks for her and her baby. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $252 to cover the cost of Kurinampa’s surgery.

Kurinampa shared, “I will really be glad if my delivery is done under your support because I can’t afford the cost of my delivery, yet the doctor had advised me to deliver through caesarean section for the safety of my baby. I hope to continue with farming once I have fully recovered.”
