Owomugisha underwent a C-Section to safely deliver her baby.

Vangelista had a successful delivery at Nyakibale Hospital! Her beautiful baby boy was born weighing 2.8KG (6.17 lbs). Both mother and baby are doing well. Vangelista was given postnatal guidance, first immunizations, and discharged home.

Vangelista shared, “I am truly humbled by your support as I couldn’t have been able to afford my surgical bill on my own. I am a living testimony because of your support, and May God bless you abundantly.”

Meet Owomugisha, a smiling, cheerful expecting mother. After completing seventh grade, Owomugisha had to leave school because the tuitions fees were too high. After staying at home to farm for a short while, she got married to her husband, and they now grow crops like beans, maize and potatoes for a living. Owomugisha is already a mother to two daughters and one son. Her children are all in primary school. In her free time, Owomugisha loves serving in the church with activities like cleaning, arranging the seats, and singing in the choir.

Owomugisha’s pregnancy is almost at term, and after reviewing her condition of three previous deliveries, doctors recommended for her to receive a C-Section. Without the procedure, attempts to deliver the baby may result in a uterine rupture, haemorrhage, and or fetal or maternal death. Fortunately, Owomugisha is scheduled to have a C-Section on Aug 3rd. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $252 to fund this procedure.

Owomugisha shares, “I can’t meet the cost of surgery on my own. I appeal for your support and I hope that God will surely bless you for that.”
