December 13, 2019

Tumusiime is a 52-year-old single mother to four children. All her children are now married and practice small scale farming since they were not able to receive enough education.

Tumusiime presented with lower abdominal pain feeling a mass in her abdomen for two years. This has reduced her work performance and caused discomfort as she gets heavy bleeding also. If not treated, she may have persistent pain, develop complications like anaemia and stands a possibility of becoming cancerous.

Tumusiime had never been to any hospital for medical treatment because she had no money but was feeling the pain. After hearing of Watsi partner’s SAFE program at Nyakibale hospital, she was seen by the gynaecologist who diagnosed her with tube ovarian mass and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia recommending total abdominal hysterectomy and cystectomy to improve her quality of health. She can’t afford the costs of her surgery and needs support.

Tumusiime says, “I hope for a good outcome from my surgery and continue with cultivation.”
