Rose is a 40-year-old woman. She is married and was blessed with six children, two sons and four daughters.
Rose and her husband are not financially stable. Her husband is a Khat farmer while Rose is a small-scale farmer who plants maize and beans for home use. She sells the rest for additional income.
Last year, Rose began to experience swelling in her abdomen. An x-ray revealed that she has an epigastric hernia which needs to be repaired. She explained that she cannot afford the hospital bill now because her husband’s Khat business is heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Fortunately our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, can help. They are asking for $768 to fund the cost of her surgery.
Rose shared, “I am pleading for help.”
