Bamutaririne is a farmer from Uganda. She is a married mother with 6 children, three girls and three boys. One of the boys is a teacher, another is a carpenter and the last one is small-scale farmer. Her oldest daughter is a soldier while the other two also practice small-scale farming. Bamutaririne earns a living from her banana and coffee plantation which she operates with her husband. She cultivates beans, maize and potatoes for home consumption and sells off the surplus.
Six months ago, Bamutaririne began experiencing lower abdominal pain associated with a backache. She has been diagnosed with a uterine prolapse with cystocele and needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Bamutaririne’s surgery. On July 7th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Bamutaririne will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Bamutaririne shared, “I will get healed, have a new life, and will praise God, thanking him for what he has done for me as I continue with farming.”
