August 23, 2021

Peace is a 43-year-old teacher and mother of three from Uganda. Her eldest daughter finished university recently but is not yet employed while Peace’s other two children are still in school. Peace graduated as a third grade teacher and has since been teaching.

During her free time, she loves tending to her domestic animals and farming. Since the Covid-19 pandemic arrived, her employment has been affected. Her husband is a boda-boda (cargo bike) driver but the income is also small to make ends meet and afford sufficient medical care.

Peace was experiencing lower abdominal pain for the past two years ago. She has been diagnosed with cystocele with a poorly healed 3rd-degree tear. She tried seeking treatment from a different health center but could not receive the treatment due to the cost of surgery. Her friend recommended she visit Nyakibale Hospital. She was reviewed and her doctors recommended uterine prolapse repair surgery.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On August 24th, Peace will undergo surgery. She will be free from the pain which she experiences daily. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting support to fund this treatment.

Peace says “I am worried I may lose my family but I have hope that once I am operated on, all will be fine and I will be relieved from this discomfort and pain.”
