Ampeire is a 52-year-old woman from Uganda. Ampeire and her husband are famers, and they have seven children. They work hard, but their income is not enough to meet their living costs.
For the past three years, Ampeire has had abnormal bleeding, back pain and general weakness. The condition has affected her day-to-day life, especially working on the farm. She was examined and diagnosed with premalignant cervical lesions. She needs a total abdominal hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. If the condition is not treated, it could become cancerous. Ampeire appeals for help to undergo the surgery and reduce the chance of complications.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $219 to fund Ampeire’s surgery. On March 2nd, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Ampeire will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Ampeire shared, “I hope that once I am operated on, I will be healed and will live a happy life as I continue with farming.”
