Charity is a 44-year-old farmer and a mother to four children, who are all in different grades in school. Charity is a local village counselor and she enjoys spending time with her family. She tends to about 10 local chickens and also does small scale farming to make ends meet. Her husband works at a retail shop to provide for the family as well.
For three months, Charity has been experiencing bleeding, lower abdominal and back pain, and abdominal distension. She has been diagnosed with uterine fibroids and a hysterectomy was recommended to help her fully heal. Successful surgery will reduce the chances of further complications like severe anemia.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $219 to fund Charity’s surgery. On August 11th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at AMH’s care center. Once recovered, Charity will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Charity shared, “I hope that I can get some relief from this pain after surgery and will continue rearing my chickens to provide for my family.”
