Komugasho is a farmer from Uganda. She is married and a mother to two sons and three daughters. Two of her daughters are small scale farmers, and her sons are both still studying in school. Komugasho was an orphan when she was younger, and studied up to senior year three, but couldn’t complete schooling due to an inability to pay school fees. She and her husband both earn a living from small scale farming, where they grow crops for home consumption and sell the surplus to make an income.
Komugasho came into our medical partner’s care center with a swelling in her left breast. She has had this mass for three years, and has been experiencing chest pain and headaches as a result. Komugasho will need to have this mass removed in order to prevent the discomfort and pain from continuing.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Komugasho receive treatment. On November 17th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Komugasho needs help to raise $196 to fund this procedure.
Komugasho shared, “I hope to get healed from this condition and expect to resume with farming after I have fully recovered.”
