Winnie is a 60-year-old woman from Uganda. She separated from her husband due to family violence and financial difficulties. As a single mother, she has been taking care of her four children, all of whom are attending secondary school, and makes ends meet by engaging in small-scale farming. Winnie is reaching out for support to restore her health and, by extension, her ability to provide for her children. Her treatment will not only alleviate her physical suffering but also empower her to continue nurturing her family and contribute positively to her community. Winnie visited our medical partner due to a mass that has been swelling on the right lumbar region (the area with the gallbladder, liver, and right colon) that has been troubling her for about eight months. She shared that the lump has consistently increased in size over time, thus causing her significant worry and fear that it might be cancerous. She is also unable to sleep on her right side, and the discomfort she experiences disrupts her ability to perform daily activities, especially her work on the farm, which is her source of livelihood. Without proper treatment, Winnie's quality of life will be severely impacted. When she sought medical help before, the doctors prescribed medication to reduce the swelling; however, the mass continued to grow. She was later advised to undergo surgery, but financial constraints prevented her from pursuing the treatment. Fortunately, Winnie was able to travel to our medical partner's care center. On November 7th, surgeons will remove the mass. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $137 to fund this procedure. Winnie said, “I am currently a single mother with no job, and yet my children need basic needs. This condition has affected me, yet I have no money for treatment. I request for your support thus being able to resume back to farming for a living."
