Belynder is a young mother of three children aged between ten and five years, who are in school. She is a tailor in her village where she earns a living and supplements her husband’s income. Her husband is a teacher, but has not been employed permanently. Belynder and her family live in a two-roomed house made of iron sheet.
Belynder experienced bleeding after delivering her second child in 2009, but she did not receive a clear diagnosis. The situation returned to normal. However, in March of 2016, she complained of pain and quick fatigue. She had an ultrasound done and was diagnosed with endometrial cysts. However, Belynder and her family are not able to raise the $800 needed for the hysterectomy and care she needs.
Belynder shared: “I want to be treated to continue providing for my children and my husband.”
