Tibanyenda is a farmer from Uganda. Tibanyenda is a widow who lost her husband in 2013. She is a mother to nine children with three sons and six daughters, all are married and are small scale farmers. She never went to school at all because when she was younger education wasn’t valued. She earns a living from her banana and coffee plantation.
For some time now, Tibanyenda has been experiencing lower abdominal pain. She has been diagnosed with a pre-malignant cervical lesion. She 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 Tibanyenda’s surgery. On August 18, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Tibanyenda will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Tibanyenda says, “I hope to get much better after I have undergone surgery, I will resume with farming.”
