Tusingwire

Tusingwire is a 53-year-old woman and a mother of three children. Two of her children have gotten married after completing school, while her youngest child is still in school. Together with her husband, Tusingwire cultivates a small piece of land to make ends meet. A vast part of their land has so far been sold to pay fees for their children. They have to work very hard in order to meet family demands, and struggle to also pay medical fees. For a year now, Tusingwire has been experiencing lower abdominal and back pains and other challenging symptoms. She has been diagnosed with multiple uterine fibroids. The condition gives her restless nights and makes her feel fatigued easily. The bleeding also worries her as it might cause anaemia. Tusingwire has tried managing her condition with medication, to no avail. At one of the facilities, she had surgery recommended and was contemplating selling her only piece of land to raise the amount required for surgery. However, she was fortunately referred to our medical partner's care center Nyakibale Hospital, where she met our Watsi partner team. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Tusingwire's surgery. On June 9th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center. Once recovered, Tusingwire will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Tusingwire shared, “I humbly beg that you help me undergo the surgery since I can’t afford the cost. I hope to recover well afterwards and continue with farming so as to educate my little daughter at least up to senior four.”
