Beata is a nun and a college student from Uganda. Beata likes very much singing along in fellowship and reading novels during her free time. She shared with us that she comes from a poor family that cannot fund the surgery that she needs.
For the last 10 years, Beata has been experiencing chronic pelvic pain associated with menorrhagia. She has been diagnosed with multiple uterine fibroids. 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 Beata’s surgery. On September 7th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Beata will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain and her quality of life will improve.
Beata says, “I am in severe pain, something that has affected my life. I hope to return to school once the government lifts the COVID-19 ban on secondary schools in the country.”
