Christine is a 26-year-old woman from Uganda. As the owner of a small business selling goods at a local market, Christine takes care of her two children and her home. She is currently pregnant with her third child.

Our medical partner, The Kellerman Foundation (KF), shares, “What makes her happiest is seeing her children at prayers at home. She and her husband, James, are both excited for this new baby.”

Because this is her third pregnancy after two cesarean sections, it is necessary for Christine to have a cesarean section with this pregnancy as well. $303 will fund Christine’s care to ensure a safe delivery for her and her baby.

“Christine wants to thank the donors for their generosity and prays that God rewards them a great deal,” KF adds.

Mercy

Mercy is a 28-year-old subsistence farmer from Malawi. She lives in a grass-thatched house with her husband and their three children. Her oldest child is nine years old and attends school, while her youngest is five years old. She and her husband also take care of her 93-year-old grandmother who depends on them. Mercy and her husband farm together and their farm produces enough food to feed the family, but not enough to sell a surplus. To supplement their income, she and her husband also work on other people's farms. In 2018, Mercy noticed a small lump on the left side of her neck. Over the years, the lump has grown and is hard and painful. After having several appointments rescheduled, Mercy finally got a scan and was referred to a lab for thyroid tests and to a surgeon. The lab tests and transportation costs have greatly impacted her family’s income, and it has taken her three years to have all of the required testing. She was finally diagnosed with an enlarged thyroid and surgery was recommended to heal her condition. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH) is helping Mercy to receive treatment. On September 2nd, she will undergo a thyroidectomy at AMH's care center. Now, she needs help raising $1,015 to fund her procedure and care. Mercy shared, "this condition is not only affecting me, but mainly my helpless 93 years old grandmother and also my family. I can no longer draw water for my grandmother and my children are too young to help. My husband is now getting exhausted combining farm work and household chores. Please assist me with this surgery so I can start helping my family again."
