Immaculate is a farmer from Uganda. She is a mother of two children and is expecting a new baby. During her free time, she enjoys farming and spending time with her family. Immaculate trained as a primary school teacher and practiced for 5 years at a nearby school. However, due to too much job pressure with low and delayed salary, she opted out and decided to practice subsistence farming together with her husband. Their income is still low and without a functional health insurance system in her country, healthcare costs are high for their family.
Immaculate shared that she lost an earlier pregnancy on her way to the hospital. She worries that she labored at home for too long because of the cost of the care if they came to the hospital. Now she is expecting again and hopes that with support she can welcome a healthy baby to the world. Her doctors have recommended a C-section delivery so they can ensure the safety of both mother and child.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Immaculate undergo a C-Section on October 6th. This procedure will cost $252, and Immaculate’s family needs your support.
Immaculate says: “I hope to deliver my baby under your support as I am unable to raise money. Farming has not been very productive. I hope to continue working again soon after weaning my child.”
