Anne received treatment for uterine fibroids.

Anne successfully underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy, in which doctors removed her uterus and cervix. She is now recovering well.

“Anne is now free from bleeding and the risk of anaemia,” reports our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation. “She will now be able to work in her photography business and support her family.”

“I am very happy and thankful to Watsi for supporting me,” Anne shares. “Now I can support my family and hopefully we plan to start our own photography studio, as it is a better business than the freelance photography we do.”

Anne is a 46-year-old woman from Kenya who has uterine fibroids. Anne lives with her three children and husband, who is also her business partner. “They go to different places where there are functions like weddings and burials and they take photos and sell to the people attending the function,” our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), writes. “This business is able to meet their basic needs but the money they make is not enough to cater for this important surgery.”

Anne needs a total abdominal hysterectomy to relieve the backaches and heavy bleeding her fibroids cause. “If not treated,” her doctors say, “Anne will continue to bleed which could lead to anaemia and other complications as the fibroids continue to grow.”

AMHF expects a full recovery after surgery, which leaves Anne hopeful. She says, “I pray for a successful surgery so that I can be able to continue supporting my family. Our hope is to start our own photography studio.”
