Annah is a small-scale farmer. She and her husband have five daughters, who are married to small-scale farmers. Annah also operates a small business where she sells food at a bodaboda stop to supplement her income. The family shared that they are not financially able to support the treatment that Annah needs.
For eight months, Annah has been experiencing bleeding with lower abdominal pain, backache, and fatigue, which has been affecting her ability to carry out her day-to-day activities. Doctors diagnosed her condition as an intramuscular uterine myoma. She will need to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), is helping Annah receive treatment. On January 4th, she will undergo gynecological surgery. Upon recovery, Annah will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. AMHF is requesting $219 to fund her life-changing surgery.
Annah shared, “I am really going through a lot of pain, but I pray that I am offered your support so that I receive treatment and get better.”
