Kobusingye is a 31-year-old tutor from Uganda. She is married with two children; both still young for education. Her husband works with the cancer institute but due to the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, she is overwhelmed with responsibilities and she no longer works. She has been a tutor at Nyakibale Nursing Training School but due to COVID schools were closed. She no longer gets any salary from her school and this is greatly impacting her wellbeing as she never had any other income.
Kobusingye presented at the hospital with a swelling on her right wrist joint, which has been present for over ten years. She has pain and discomfort, and it increasingly affects her ability to work.
Kobusingye traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On September 15th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Kobusingye needs help to raise $196 to fund this procedure.
Kobusingye told us: “I will be happy when am supported so that by the time schools open for me to get back to teaching, I find it has fully healed.”
