Christine, a 36-year-old loving mom, lives with her husband and family in southwestern Uganda. While Christine had hoped to become a nurse, she didn’t have the money for the school fees, so together with her husband, she now works as a farmer. She is hopeful that one of her children will go into nursing, fulfilling her own dream in the next generation.

Christine is currently expecting a baby. At her most recent antenatal visit, the doctors recommended that she deliver this child via Caesarean section, because of the risks from her previous C-sections. Christine and her husband are unable to pay for this procedure, which they know offers the best chance for a safe and healthy outcome for both mother and child.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is here to help. They are requesting $252 to cover the costs of Christine’s C-section, which is scheduled to take place on September 2nd, at Karoli Lwanga Hospital in Nyakibale.

Christine says: “My only worry is the hospital bill, but when covered under your support, I am sure the rest will be fine.”
