Ritah is a hardworking mother of three. She graduated with a degree in economics and was employed until 2020 when Covid affected her country and her job. She lost her only source of income yet still had to find a way to provide for her family. She separated from her husband due to domestic wrangles and currently lives alone. Ritah opened a mobile money transfer outlet which is still growing and earns her income to meet her day to day needs.
Since two years ago, Ritah started having a swelling on her left hand. It was initially painless but in the last six months, has become painful. She went to the national referral hospital but the cost of recommended surgery was too high for her. She came to Nyakibale Hospital and requested for help.
On April 5th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Ritah needs help to raise $137 to fund this procedure.
Ritah said: “I will be fine after being given a chance to undergo my surgery and hope to get free from this disfigurement.”
