Philaris is a farmer from Uganda. She is a wife and mother of three. Phalaris performs different kinds of jobs across her village, such as laundry and working in other people’s farms, to meet her family’s daily needs.
On July 18th, Philaris sustained a severe injury to her right leg when she fell from a tree while she was fetching firewood. She is in pain and cannot walk on her own. She has been diagnosed with a right tibia fracture.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On July 22nd, Philaris will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help her walk easily again and no longer be in pain Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.
Philaris says, “I want to get treated because I don’t want these circumstances to determine my future and that of my family. I want to see my children happy and get their daily needs.”
