Francin underwent a safe c-section and welcomed a baby girl.

Francin underwent a caesarean section. Her surgery was successful and Francin delivered a healthy baby girl. Francin and her new baby were discharged home in good health and the medical team advised her on good postnatal care for her new baby girl.

Francin says, “When I left my country and came to Uganda, I thought all was gold but having been mistreated and having my documents confiscated, I knew it was the end of me. Even when I conceived I worried how will I get the money. I am very glad that you have paid for my bill, I have somewhere to start from now.”

Francin is the mother of a young child and is expecting her second baby. She is a resilient woman from Burundi who came to Uganda in search of a job. Before leaving for work, Francin had only completed seventh grade in primary school. After arriving at Uganda, she found a job but her wages were denied to her for 15 months and her boss confiscated her passport and ID, making it impossible for Francin to return home. Francin has gotten married in Uganda, but separated from her husband. Now, she has started working on other people’s farms as a temporary laborer but is experiencing pregnancy complications.

Francin attended our medical partner’s care center, Nyakibale Hospital, for antenatal care, and is scheduled to receive a cesarean section on August 5th. After the surgery, she will be able to continue her temporary jobs, though she hopes to be able to return to her home country. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $252 for Francin to receive a c-section.

Francin says, “I am really suffering in Uganda as I don’t know anyone and am living by the mercies of God and people. Through your support, I will be able to continue with casual labour for my survival.”
