Kyomuhendo is a single mother of one and her daughter is currently 20 years old. Kyomuhendo is a small-scale farmer, but her farming output has been reduced due to her poor health conditions. As a result, she has been unable to support her daughter financially.
Nine years ago, Kyomuhendo began experiencing severe lower abdominal pain. She has since been diagnosed with uterine fibroids. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
On February 3rd, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, care center. Once recovered, Kyomuhendo will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Kyomuhendo needs help raising $319 to fund her procedure and care.
Kyomuhendo says, “My condition has negatively affected my productivity and I am living a poor quality of life. I hope to resume farming comfortably after treatment and be able to take good care of myself and my family.”
