Margaret is a 53-year-old woman from Kenya who came to Kijabe Hospital, a Watsi partner in Kenya, to seek treatment for abdominal bleeding.
Margaret used to own a small clothing shop until it was destroyed in Kenya’s post-election violence. She is a mother of four, but two of her children passed away in an accident.
Margaret has had abdominal bleeding for over three months now, and is at risk of becoming severely anemic. Her condition requires a total abdominal hysterectomy. When Margaret and her husband first learned of her condition, they sold their livestock to raise funds for care, but they cannot afford the total cost of the procedure.
For $885, Margaret will receive surgery that will stop the bleeding. Margaret says, “After I am well, I want to open my clothing business again.” Let’s help get her well so she can pursue her wish!
