Edith is a farmer from Kenya and a single mother of a 23-year-old. She lives in her parental house practicing subsistence farming to make ends meet.
Since 9 years ago, Edith has been experiencing an abdominal swelling and has been having bouts of pain. Recently, she has experienced severe back pains. Doctors have diagnosed her with a large abdomino-pelvic mass. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $832 to fund Edith’s surgery. On May 21th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Edith will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Edith says, “My hope is to be treated and resume my work normally.”
