Mugyenyi is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is widow and has three children who are all small-scale farmers who are all married.
For the last two years, Mugyenyi has experienced discomfort and disfigurement and has been diagnosed with a mass on the posterior aspect of her right arm. It is not painful but has been progressively increasing in size and needs to be excised.
Mugyenyi traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On July 16th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Mugyenyi needs help to raise $145 to fund this procedure.
Mugyenyi shared, “With the surgery, I will be able to work comfortably again and be able to carry on with my duties normally. I will resume farming as soon as possible.”
