“Scovia and her husband Ronald are so excited about having their first child, because they have been trying for a while,” our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, says.
Scovia is a 25-year-old expectant mother working as a small-scale farmer in Uganda. In their free time, SK tells us, “Scovia and Ronald enjoy going to church and socializing with their neighbors.”
Scovia has been identified as a high-risk pregnancy because her baby is large. To help ensure a safe delivery, Scovia will require a Cesarean section, which will cost $303.
Scovia and Ronald are looking forward to bringing their baby home. They hope that their child is born healthy, and they will be able to pay school fees so he or she can have a good education.
“Both parents would like to say thank you to all the donors,” our medical partner adds. “Having a C-section is expensive and they appreciate the help very much.”
