Honest is a 22-year-old woman who lives in a rural village in Uganda with her mother. The two of them grow millet, groundnuts, cassava, potatoes, and rice on a rented plot of land. Honest also does farm labor in the community to earn income to support the family.

In her free time, she enjoys visiting friends and relatives. She also enjoys going to church and weaving mats.

Honest is pregnant, but she has severe anemia. This can lead to fetal distress or growth restriction. For this reason, her doctors consider her pregnancy to be high-risk. They recommend that she receive medical attention before, during, and after labor to ensure a safe delivery. On March 7, she will begin to receive supplements and attend antenatal checkups and health education classes. She will deliver her baby in the hospital, and she will undergo a C-section if necessary. After birth, Honest and her baby will be monitored by the hospital staff.

Honest’s family will contribute $8 to her care. Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is requesting an additional $241.

“Thanks donors for helping me pay my hospital bills, which I cannot afford to pay. I wish the donors keep up with the helping heart to support many needy women like me,” she says.
