about Amutuhaire's recovery.

July 12, 2021

Amutuhaire is a 32-year-old farmer with a small piece of land from Western Uganda. Amutuhaire was educated by a local preacher up until high school, but she had to pause after the preacher was transferred away. Before getting married, she took up temporary work as a cleaner. Amutuhaire’s husband is a taxi conductor, but isn’t able to earn a lot. They live in a rental house.

Unfortunately, Amutuhaire lost her first child last year a few hours after delivery, leaving her devastated by the loss. She is again an expecting mother. Amutuhaire received a full antenatal package in our medical partner’s care center, Nyakibale Hospital. Her doctor recommended an C-Section due to her earlier risks and the shortness of the time interval between pregnancies. The procedure will reduce the chances of uterine rupture which could happen if normal delivery is attempted. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $252 to help fund this procedure.

Amutuhaire shares her story, “I have hopes that I will go home with a child this time because my first experience was quite tragic. I never even got a chance to carry my child because he was put on oxygen as soon as he was born then minutes later, he was dead.”

Naw Eh

Naw Eh is a 11-year-old girl who lives with her mother, five brother and two sisters in a refugee camp. She and her siblings study in the refugee camp while her mother weaves traditional indigenous Karen shirts to earn extra income for their household. In her free time, Naw Eh loves to play with her younger brother at home. Sometimes, she will play with her friends close to her house. She wants to be an English teacher at a primary school in the future. In late July 2021, Naw Eh went out to buy some snacks from a shop. On the way to the shop, she slipped and fell on the muddy road. When she fell she hurt her left leg. Since she was able to walk slowly, the medic in the camp did not think her leg was broken and only gave her pain medication. On 19 August 2021, Naw Eh lost her grip when she was sitting down in a chair and fell down. This time she could not stand up or walk. After a doctor at Mae Sariang Hospital diagnosed her with a fractured femur, she was referred to Chiang Mai Hospital for further treatment. At that hospital, the doctor told Naw Eh's brother that they want to do an MRI of her leg to check if she has any underlying conditions that caused her to break her femur so easily. With support from Watsi, the MRI was possible and now the surgeon has determined that surgery is required to help her leg heal properly. Currently, Naw Eh suffers from pain in her left leg and she cannot move or put weight on that leg. If she moves her leg, the pain increases. Her brother needs to help her use the bedpan as she cannot walk to the toilet. He also needs to help her get dressed. She is taking pain medication to help her sleep at night. She is worried that if her condition is not treated properly, she will never be able to walk again. She misses going to school and wants to continue her studies in grade four once her school reopens. With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Naw Eh will undergo surgery to reset her fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for September 2nd and will cost $1,500. After surgery, Naw Eh will no longer experience pain in her leg and she will be able to get herself dress and be able to walk to the toilet. Naw Eh said, "I am worried that if I do not receive surgery and receive proper treatment, I will not be able to walk again."
