Kembabazi is married with five children from Uganda. Three of her children have completed their studies but are doing jobs outside their areas of expertise due to scarcity of jobs, two are still in school. Her husband is a cleaner at the airport where he earns a living but they are overwhelmed by loans due to school tuition. Kembabazi operates a small retail shop and does some farming for home use.
For many years, Kembabazi has been experiencing lower abdominal pain and abnormal bleeding. She has been diagnosed with multiple uterine fibroids. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Kembabazi’s surgery. On May 22nd, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Kembabazi will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Kembabazi said: “I will be fine after surgery since my health will be restored and I can continue with my business at the shop and at times will be able to farm too.”
