Tereza is a 77-year-old widow. She is a small-scale farmer, but is unable to work her farm due to her current health condition. Tereza shared that it is hard to receive support from anyone in her community. She lives with her grandson in a three-roomed, semi-permanent house.
Six months ago, Tereza developed a painful swelling on the left wrist. The condition has caused disfigurement in the affected area, and she has pain and discomfort. She hardly washes clothes, cooks, or uses the affected arm now. Tereza’s work performance and quality of life have significantly deteriorated due to her pain. She visited Nyakibale Hospital after learning about it from her neighbors, and was diagnosed with a ganglion cyst. She needs surgery to remove the painful mass.
Tereza traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On November 8th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Tereza needs help to raise $137 to fund this procedure.
Tereza says, “I am currently quite vulnerable because I don’t have help yet I still need to eat and take care of certain home chores. I will appreciate your financial assistance so that I can receive treatment.”
