Olivia is a stay-at-home mother of two from Uganda. Her firstborn is 4-years-old and her second is 3-years-old. Olivia shared that she left school after completing primary school class three as her family didn’t have the money for her to continue. Her husband works as a shop attendant and, together, they own a three-room mud house for the family. During her free time, Olivia enjoys playing with her children.
Olivia is currently expecting her third child and has received antenatal care at Rushoroza Hospital. Her doctors recommended that she deliver via a cesarean section due to a contracted pelvis and her previous history when she deliver her second child through a C-section. On November 26th, she visited the hospital for review after feeling slight pains at home. Olivia needs to undergo a C-section to prevent the risk that her uterus could rupture and lead to death for both mother and baby. Through this procedure, doctors can ensure their safety.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMH), is helping Olivia undergo a C-Section on November 26th. AMH is requesting $214 to fund this procedure.
Olivia shared, “I pray for a successful surgery and a good outcome. I plan to start farming as soon as I recover completely.”
