August 19, 2020

Akaturwanaho finished senior four and went to train in a tailoring course. She also trained in hairdressing and opened her own hair salon. Unfortunately, during lockdown she has been unable to work because her salon is closed due to COVID-19 prevention measures.

Akaturwanaho is married with three children and she is expecting her fourth. All the children are in school; primary four, primary two and nursery. Her husband is a technical teacher as he teaches building and construction and because schools are closed, he also is unable to work.

Akaturawnaho has sought care at our medical partner’s care center. She delivered her firstborn by normal delivery in 2010, her second was delivered by cesarean section in 2013, and the third by cesarean section due to oligohydramnios in 2016.

Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $252 to help fund the cost of her cesarean.

Akaturwanaho says, “I hope to have a smooth delivery and will be glad to have your support. Once I recover and the COVID-19 situation improves, I will continue with my salon.”
