Pauline is a 65-year-old small-scale farmer and mother of eight, living in Uganda. In addition to farming, Pauline raises cows so that she can sell milk to earn additional money for her family.
For the past eight months Pauline has had a swelling on her back. The swelling causes her pain, and has continued to increase in size. Pauline sought medical attention, and it was recommended that she have the mass excised.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Pauline to access the care that she needs. On December 21st, surgeons at Karoli Lwanga Hospital, Nyakibale will remove the mass on Pauline’s back. Now she needs your support to raise the $137 to fund this procedure.
Pauline says: “I believe that I will get better once this swelling is removed. I appeal for your financial support to undergo this surgery.”
