Sunday is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is a mother of five, with all of her children now teenagers and the oldest being 20 years old. All her other children are still in school and their family’s biggest challenge is raising school fees for all their children. She likes very much taking care of their family’s crops in the fields.
For the last three years, Sunday has been experiencing abdominal pains accompanied by severe headaches. She has been diagnosed with chronic pelvic pain and possible cervical cancer due to suspicious lesions. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $228 to fund Sunday’s surgery. On August 14th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Sunday will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain and her quality of life will improve.
Sunday says, “I am in severe pain, I am helpless. I have lost hope. Given the opportunity with the surgery, I believe I can be able to work harder through farming to be able to sustain myself and my entire family.”
