Busingye is a small retail shop owner. Busingye stays in a double-roomed rental house at a trading center where she uses the front room as a shop and the back room as her home with her husband and two children. She has great social skills and makes everyone laugh. Busingye holds a diploma in economics, but was unable to get a job in her profession so operates a small retail shop where she earns little profit.
For some time now, Busingye has been experiencing bleeding, abdominal pain, backache, and other symptoms. She has been diagnosed with a premalignant cervical lesion and needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Busingye’s surgery. On September 27th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Busingye will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Busingye shared, “My doctors say if I don’t undergo surgery, it will become cancerous. This gets me worried but I hope with your support, I will be able to succeed.”
