Magret is a 49-year-old small scale farmer from Uganda. She is a single mother of four children and lives in a two-room mud house. Her oldest child is 28 years old and recently received a diploma, but has not yet found a job. Her second born child unfortunately left school after primary school class seven due to a lack of school fees. Her thirdborn child is 21 years old and in secondary school class four, while her youngest is 17 years old and in secondary school class two. She pays for their school fees through her work as a farmer. Since August 2022, Magret has been experiencing lower abdominal pains. She visited a nearby health clinic where she was prescribed medication that helped for some time, but her symptoms returned earlier this year. She is in pain but cannot stop farming because she relies on it to care for her family. Magret has been diagnosed with uterine fibroids and needs to undergo a hysterectomy, or a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Magret receive treatment. On April 14th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at AMH's care center. Once recovered, Magret will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Now, she needs help raising $319 to fund her procedure and care. Magret shared, "I believe that I will get well through surgery. I hope to continue with farming comfortably after surgery so that I may be able to continue taking good care of myself and my family."
