December 16, 2019

Twinemukama is a 46 year old mother to five children. Two children completed high school but never went on for further studies due to lack of school fees. The others are still students. Her husband and her are both small-scale farmers.

Twinemukama presented with epigastric pain for one year but gives a history of having an unsutured perineal tear from 8 years ago. What disturbs her mind most is the tear which has made her life complicated and brings discomfort.

Twinemukama had never tried seeking medical attention to her condition due to financial problems. Having come to Nyakibale hospital for treatment, she was diagnosed with poorly healed perineal tear and was recommended for colporrhaphy treatment. She said she had no money and was oriented to Watsi’s medical partner’s SAFE program for support.

Twinemukama says, “I am hoping to have a successful surgery in order for me to have good health again.”
