Bitwire is a small scale farmer from Uganda. She is married with four children who are all still in school. Bitwire and her husband are both small scale farmers. Together with the husband they grow crops like maize, millet, sorghum, groundnuts however they are of little demand thus affecting their economic status. They toil hard to get tuition for their children to go to school. Their first born is studying medicine at university but it has been alot of sacrifice on the part of Bitwire and her husband to ensure they can pay tuition.
Bitwire presents with painful swollen mass on the left medial aspect of the right arm for one year. It has made her unable to lift her arm making her unable to work on her farm.
Bitwire traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On December 03, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Bitwire needs help to raise $187 to fund this procedure.
Bitwire says, “I hope to get better after surgery I continue with farming for the survival of my family.”
