Prima is a 56 year old widowed mother of one child, living in Uganda. After losing her husband more than 20 years ago, Prima and her child moved to a three-roomed mud house that Prima built, and began a new life. Today, Prima works as a small scale farmer, and also crafts things by hand to sell for additional money.
For the past five years, Prima has been experiencing lower abdominal pains associated with persistent and prolonged bleeding and pain. She reported to Rushoroza Hospital a few days ago, and was diagnosed with severe anemia. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is seeking $319 to fund the hysterectomy that Prima needs to finally heal her condition. The surgery is scheduled to take place on December 2nd at Rushoroza Hospital. Once she has recovered, Prima will be able to resume a full and productive life, free from pain.
Prima says: “I was not doing well; I thank God that I rushed to Rushoroza Hospital for treatment. I pray that my surgery goes well so that I may be able to resume farming and take good care of myself and family.”
