Mundanikure is a small-scale farmer from Uganda and a mother of five, none of whom were able to complete schooling. Mundanikure’s husband has another wife he lives with and he is the local council chairman of their village; however, Mundanikure shared that unfortunately he does not support their family for health needs.
For the last year, Mundanikure has been experiencing abdominal pains and heavy bleeding. She has been diagnosed with uterine fibroids and needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $228 to fund Mundanikure’s surgery. On August 14th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Mundanikure will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain and her quality of life will improve.
Mundanikure shared, “I hope to live a normal life again through a surgery. I will resume farming so I can take care of and sustain my family.”
