Tushabe is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is married with seven children.
For six months, Tushabe has been experiencing severe lower abdominal bleeding. She has been diagnosed with chronic pelvic pain, degenerative uterine fibroids, and a poorly healed perineal tear. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $208 to fund Tushabe’s surgery. On January 31, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Tushabe will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Tushabe says, “I wish my hope can be restored to enable me continue with cultivation for the support to my family after surgery.”
