Nyinebirabo is a 54-year-old woman who helps work in her neighbor’s farms to earn an income for her daily necessities. For the past year, she has not been able to sustain lengthy working periods on the farms because she’s developed uterine fibroids. Nyinebirabo has not been able to access treatment due to the cost of care, but she needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Nyinebirabo’s surgery. On April 23rd, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Nyinebirabo will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain and worry.
Nyinebirabo shared, “I really ask you to have mercy on me and help me undergo the surgery because it’s the only way I can regain my health. I hope to resume farming and continue providing for my basic needs once recovered.”
