Natukunda underwent a c-section.

Natukunda received a successful caesarean section treatment that was recommended due to three previous scars. She is now doing fine with a new baby girl. The baby is healthy and weighs 3.3kgs. Both Natukunda and her baby will have improved quality of life from now.

Natukunda says, “Am thankful for this opportunity as I never knew that surely I would deliver freely. Am thankful to the Almighty. Thanks so much for saving my life. I will continue with teaching after my recovery since I am a teacher.”

Natukunda is a mother of three with a history of having had three previous emergency c-sections in 2003, 2005, and 2009. Since 2009 she had been on family planning. She stopped family planning a few months ago and got pregnant.

This pregnancy has been very challenging as she has morning sickness and feels very weak. Even simple tasks at home like washing is a burden. This has made her have a poor quality of life. She was advised to deliver via caesarean section for the prevention of complications like a uterine rupture.

Natukunda has one sibling who operates a small scale retail shop in Kampala. Both Natukunda and her husband are primary teachers and she says her she has a lot of dependents. She can’t afford the costs for her surgery she needs SAFE programs support.

Natukunda says, “I will be extremely humbled having a successful surgery, a live baby and continue with my teaching and supporting my family.”

Stanley

Stanley is a manual labourer from Kenya. A father of 3 children, all between 11 to 22 years old, his children are in school and are dependent on him for support. Depending on the availability of work, he and his wife do daily manual jobs. As a result, their income is not stable, and they also do not have medical coverage. They live in a 2-room house in their ancestral home in Ndeiya. Last month, Stanley was working to offload and reload hay. He and some other workers had gone to deliver the grass to a client in a village a few kilometres from their town of Limuru. Stanley was trying to direct the lorry through a corner. Once the driver had finished driving through the corner, Stanley tried to jump back into the vehicle while it sped off. He missed a step and flipped, causing serious wounds on his thigh and a fracture on the left fibula head and left femoral condul. He also has an unstable knee. Following this accident, Stanley has undergone multiple debridement surgeries to treat the wound. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Stanley receive treatment. On November 18th, surgeons will perform a debridement and skin graft procedure to finally help him heal and prevent infection. Now, Stanley needs help to fund this $1,185 procedure. Stanley shared, “My bills have really gone up and I am not able to settle them. I still need this surgery recommended by the doctors so that I can heal properly and avoid infections.”
