Kobusingye is a 23 year old small scale farmer. She has two children: a boy and a girl both delivered via caesarean section who are now studying in kindergarten. As a mother and wife, Kobusingye enjoys doing domestic work like cooking, cleaning, and caring for her family. She earns a living from farming but typically only harvests produce to feed her family since they have little land. Her husband is in the bodaboda (motorcycle taxi) business, but due to lockdown where transport was frozen, he isn’t able to work right now.

Kobusingye is carrying her third pregnancy. She attended antenatal care from our medical partner’s care center, Nyakibale Hospital. Her doctor recommended delivery by caesarean section due to her previous pregnancies and deliveries. The procedure will reduce the chances of complications like uterine rupture. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $252 for this surgery.

Kobusingye shares, “I will really appreciate your support and hope for a successful delivery.”
