Mbabazi is a 64-year-old small scale farmer and a mother to one child. She works hard and supplements her income by working casual jobs in other people’s farms.
For close to three years now, Mbabazi has had severe lower abdominal pain associated with backache and other symptoms. Mbabazi is not able to do strenuous work due to back pain. She had been managing the pain with painkillers until she visited Nyakibale Hospital, where doctors recommend that she have a hysterectomy to treat her condition. Once treated, she will be out of risk of anaemia. However, Mbabazi cannot afford the cost of her care, and appeals for financial support.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Mbabazi’s surgery. On April 6th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Mbabazi will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Mbabazi shared, “My only hopes of having my health restored is by undergoing surgery and with your support, I hope it will surely be possible. I really hope the severe pain and bleeding will end.”
