Ester is a 32-year-old small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is married and she and her husband have two children together, who were both delivered via cesarean section in 2008 and 2015 respectively. Both children currently attend primary school. Ester attended school through the fifth grade but discontinued her education due to a lack of funding. Ester’s parents are both small-scale farmers as well, and Ester is the third born of their nine children. During her free time, Ester enjoys spending time with her family.
Ester is currently expecting her third child. Due to scars from her previous C-Sections, her doctors recommend that she deliver via a cesarean section again to ensure the safety of her and her baby.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Ester undergo a C-Section on July 4th. This procedure will cost $252, and Ester needs your support.
Ester says, “I am on my knees for this support as I cannot afford the bills. I hope for the best delivery and resume farming after full recovery to earn a living.”
