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.”

Kay

Kay is a 34-year-old woman who lives with her husband and two sons in a village on the Thai-Burma border. Her husband is a day labourer at a construction site, while both of her children are students. Kay used to work in a factory but stopped last year when her health deteriorated. Kay remembers first feeling the pain she has in her abdomen in April of 2014, a month after she gave birth to her second son. Five years later, the pain in the left side of her abdomen returned. Kay also could not eat or drink anything, and vomited every time she tried to eat. At the hospital, she was given medication and was instructed to take it regularly. Though Kay felt better at a follow-up appointment, some of her symptoms were still persistent, so the medic referred her to Mae Sot Hospital (MSH) for further investigation. At that hospital, Kay received an ultrasound, blood test and urine test, and the results revealed that she had stones in her left ureter. The doctor recommended that she undergo laser treatment to breakup these stones and treat the pain she has been experiencing. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is helping Kay receive treatment. On March 2nd, she is scheduled to undergo a shockwave lithotripsy treatment at our medical partner's care center. This procedure will cost $1,500, and she and her family need help raising money. Kay shared, “I really want to recover. I cannot work at the factory [because of my condition] but I want to earn money. In the future, if I recover, I want to open a small shop to sell dry goods.”
