Esther is a small-scale farmer who has two children and also takes care of her sister’s four children because her sister unfortunately passed away. She is now the sole provider of six children and pays for their school fees all by herself. They live together in a 2 bedroom house.
Esther started to experience abdominal pain 3 years ago. Due to the severity of the pain, she recently visited our medical partner’s care facility. She will undergo surgery for her acute appendicitis. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $646 to cover the cost of Esther’s curative laparatomy. This surgery will hopefully relieve her pain and enable her to live life more comfortably and confidently.
“I would really appreciate treatment because I am the sole breadwinner for my family,” shared Esther.
