Owomutima is a 45-year-old tailor from Uganda. She is a single mother to one child who is in high school. She earns a living from her tailoring workshop but since it is located deep in the village, she at times has to carry out cultivation since she doesn’t earn all she needs from her tailoring work. She separated with her husband three years ago and lives with her parents who are small-scale farmers.
For some time now, Owomutima has been experiencing heavy uterine breeding and severe backaches. She has been diagnosed with a large uterine mass. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Owomutima’s surgery. On July 14th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Owomutima will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Owomutima says: “I will pray to God to bless you for supporting me. I expect to continue with tailoring after my surgery.”
