Ampaire is a 30-year-old mother from Uganda. She is a mother of two children. Ampaire is the last born in a family of eleven children and has two brothers and eight sisters, all of whom are married and are small scale farmers. When she was younger, she didn’t have enough money to further her studies past senior four level, so she decided to do a course in nursery teaching. She currently makes a living from teaching in a nearby nursery school, and also does some small scale farming to earn a little extra support for their family.
Ampaire came to the hospital with a history of two previous C-sections. Her first C-section was in 2011 due to fetal distress, and the second one in 2019 was due to was poor progress in the baby’s development. For her current pregnancy, she has attended antenatal care at Nyakibale Hospital six times, and it was during her last visit that doctors recommended she deliver through a caesarean section. This would help prevent complications like uterine rupture that may occur while attempting to deliver normally.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Ampaire receive this procedure. They are requesting $252 to fund her procedure. On January 26th, surgeons at their care center will perform a C-section surgery that will allow her to deliver her baby safely.
Ampaire shared, “My prayer is to have a successful delivery of my baby and regain my health after surgery so that I can continue taking care of my family.”
