Kyogabirwe successfully underwent a caesarean section and delivered a healthy baby girl weighing 2.9kgs. Her baby is breastfeeding well and they are now home enjoying time together as a family.

Kyogabirwe shared, “I pray that may the Lord bless you with strength so that you may continue helping other people in need like you did for me. I will continue with farming after I have fully recovered.”

Kyogabirwe is a 32-year-old mother of two who came to our Medical Partner’s Care Center Nyakibale hospital for her antenatal visits and doctors have advised her to deliver through a caesarian section to ensure her health and that of the baby.

Kyogabirwe however is worried about the cost of this delivery. She lost her nursery teaching job when Covid-19 arrived and schools were closed. Their family’s only source of income is her husband’s small motorcycle business, but the income is not enough to meet the cost of living and medical cost.

Kyogabirwe shared, “I will really be grateful for your support. COVID19 has really affected us financially. After I recovery from the c-section, I hope to continue with farming.”

Adere

Adere is a 14-year-old boy from Ethiopia. He is a grade seven student who loves to go to school and study. Adere also loves music and spends his free time listening to country music and dancing with his friends. Adere's parents are farmers of teff and maize, but they have a limited harvest each year due to the hot and dry landscape. The local community is mostly supported by government and NGOs for food and other basic need. His parents have 12 children, most of whom they are still supporting financially. As a result, Adere's parents need assistance with the upcoming medical bill for their son's surgery. Adere was born with a congenital anomaly called bladder exstrophy, and last year he received surgery to treat this condition in BethanyKids Hospital funded through Watsi donor support. Now, he is scheduled to undergo another surgery for his epispadias condition. Epispadias is an abnormal defect in a sensitive area that prevents him from using the bathroom comfortably. His condition may also cause future infertility problems. Adere will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare. Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo an epispadias repair procedure on February 11th. African Mission Healthcare is requesting $1,040 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care. This procedure will enable him to use the bathroom comfortably and prevent risk of future complications. Adere's brother shared, “I hope he can be relieved of this condition soon. That would be a great blessing for him and for our family. I hope he will be a doctor and treat children in need.”
