about Jackline's recovery.

September 8, 2021

Jackline is a 36-year-old woman. She previously worked as a teacher, but since the pay was very minimal, she now works as a banana trader, as bananas are a staple food in her home country of Uganda. Her husband is a builder and, together, they have five children. They shared that their income is just enough to make ends meet.

Jackline visited our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), for her antenatal care. Due to her previous pregnancy history, doctors recommend she deliver through an elective Caesarean section (C-Section) to reduce the chances of any complications. AMH is requesting $252 to fund this procedure, and Jackline and her husband hope she can undergo the planned surgery.

Jackline shared, “I desire to have a safe delivery but the cost is limiting. I appeal for financial assistance.”
