Mercy received a total abdominal hysterectomy.

“I am thankful to the donors for their support,” shares Mercy. “Someday I hope to be a blessing to others too.”

“Mercy successfully underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy to treat uterine prolapse,” reports her doctor at African Mission Healthcare Foundation. “Mercy is recovering well.

“I have always loved working with children,” explains Mercy. “My dream is to one day open a children’s home where I can take care of abandoned children.”

Mercy lives in Kenya with her husband and three children. Mercy tends to the children and household while her husband works as a farmer on land he’s rented to grow potatoes for sale. Mercy and her family live with her husband’s parents, and rely on what they can produce from their small farm and four goats to provide for the family.
