Suzan is a mother of five children from Uganda. She recently moved to her home village with her children and works as a small farmer raising food for her family. She also operates a small business selling household items, such as soap, salt, flour, and other foods. In her spare time, Suzan enjoys visiting friends and relatives and talking with elders about traditional stories. She also enjoys teaching her children traditional dances and songs, attending church, and praising God.
Suzan is currently expecting twins. Her pregnancy is high-risk because she is experiencing pre-term labor and bleeding. Despite her condition, she made the 45 kilometer trip to our medical partner’s care center, Bwindi Community Hospital, on the back of a motorcycle.
Her doctors recommend that she receive medical attention before, during, and after labor to ensure a safe delivery. On March 23, she will begin to receive supplements and attend antenatal checkups and health education classes. She will deliver her baby in the hospital, and she will undergo a C-section if necessary. After birth, Suzan and her baby will be monitored by the hospital staff.
Suzan has contributed $7 to her care. Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is requesting an additional $241.
