Kyarikunda is an expecting mother who is 37 weeks pregnant. She has five children with her husband, and both of them are farmers who work hard to support their family.

When Kyarikunda came for an antenatal visit, doctors advised her to consider delivering via c-section due to her two previous c-sections. Attempts to deliver without a c-section may result in uterine rapture and post-term hemorrhage. However, Kyarikunda and her family cannot afford the cost of this procedure. She appeals for help to undergo a safe c-section delivery for her baby.

Kyarikunda will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare. Fortunately, she is scheduled to undergo a c-section on April 23rd. African Mission Healthcare is requesting $252 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care. The surgery will help both Kyarikunda and her baby to be safe and healthy once she delivers.

Kyarikunda shared, “I hope to have a successful and safe delivery with your support, and I will continue with farming once I have fully recovered.”

Kyarituha

Kyarituha is a tailor from Uganda. Kyarituha attended school until reaching secondary school class three, but did not finish her education due to financial constraints at home. After leaving, she enrolled at a tailoring practice. Two years ago, Kyarituha stopped working as a tailor and became a homemaker when business stopped being profitable. Kyarituha's husband is a small scale farmer. Together with their 3 children, the family lives in a three-roomed house. Their two older children are in primary school, which requires school fees that the parents find difficult to supply. During her free time, Kyarituha still enjoys being able to repair clothes for her family and friends. Kyarituha is currently expecting her fourth child. She received full antenatal care at our medical partner's care center, Rushoroza Hospital. When she came to the hospital on July 19th with minor pain, she was reviewed and a caesarean section was recommended by her doctors due to a previous c-section and unfavorable fetus position. The procedure could save her from uterine rupture which puts her and her baby at risk. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMH), is helping Kyarituha undergo a C-Section on July 20th. AMH is requesting support for this $207 procedure that will ensure the safety of both the mother and child. Kyarituha shares her future plans, “I pray for a successful surgery. I will resume tailoring as soon as I gather enough business capital but meanwhile, I plan to start farming to assist my husband in taking care of our family.”
