Turyahebwa is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is married with five children, all of whom are studying in primary school. She and her husband plant crops such as cassava, groundnuts, millet, sorghum, and beans.
For the past 16 years, Turyahebwa has had a growing mass in a sensitive area. This has restricted her movement because the pain is radiating into her left leg, making it difficult for her to walk.
Turyahebwa traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On August 21, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Turyahebwa needs help to raise $196 to fund this procedure.
Turyahebwa says, “I will be glad to have a relief of this painful and discomforting condition after surgery and I continue with cultivation to cater for my family.”
