Pauline is a 43-year-old woman who lives in Kenya with her husband and four children. Pauline and her husband are farmers - this is how they support their family.
A year ago Pauline began to experience pain in her lower abdomen and back as well as irregular and heavy bleeding. She was diagnosed with uterine fibroids. Physicians at our hospital partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, have recommended that Pauline have a total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH) to keep the fibroids from growing so that she will not continue to lose blood.
“Pauline is very social and leads many women groups in her area,” our medical partner tells us.”Unfortunately, this condition is making her avoid social gatherings.”
Together, we can raise the $790 to pay for Pauline’s TAH procedure. “I am confident that the donors will come to my aid so that I can be able to regain my life,” says Pauline.
