November 17, 2021

Amos is a small scale farmer. After completing secondary school, Amos started practicing farming and when he married, his wife joined him on the farm. He is now a father of three children with the eldest in primary school. Their family leads a modest lifestyle.

Four years ago, Amos developed a small painless neck swelling. Over time, the swell has been increasing in size and has had him worried about the complications that might result from it. With the swell increasing, he is not able to turn his neck easily and cannot carry a heavy load on his head. He visited Rushoroza Hospital and was diagnosed with a lipoma that needs excision. He appeals for financial assistance to fund his treatment.

On November 19th”, surgeons will remove the mass. Our medical care partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $145 to fund this procedure.

Amos says, “I am currently looking abnormal with the neck swelling and I need help. I hope to look normal again and continue with farming as soon as possible.”

Beatrice

Beatrice is a quiet lady in her early 50’s who has been blessed with six children, now ages 14-27. She runs a small grocery at the marketplace to provide for her family. Beatrice's husband doesn’t have a stable job. He does casual jobs across the village such as clearing bushes to meet the needs of his family. Beatrice and her family live in a two-bedroom house constructed with mud. They depend mostly on their daily jobs for food and save a little to pay school fees for their children and bills at the end of the month. A week ago, Beatrice sustained a left arm injury after fainting. Beatrice was brought to Kapsowar Hospital and an X-Ray was done which confirmed a fracture to her left humerus. Beatrice shared that she has a history of fainting and subsequently falling. Beatrice is in pain and she is unable to attend to her normal day-to-day things now. Beatrice is concerned that she can’t cook for her family or run her grocery business due to her injury. Beatrice had a cast applied about a week ago and was discharged to go home to look for funds for her surgery. A week later, Beatrice returned to the hospital with no hope of raising funds for her surgery. Their family is unable to raise the required amount with their low wages only able to afford daily needs like meals and clothing. Fortunately, our medical partner can help. On September 7th, Beatrice will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation procedure. Beatrice will no longer be in pain, she will be able to attend to her grocery business and take care of her family. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $941 to fund this procedure. Beatrice says, “Life has never been the same since I broke my hand. I am worried about my children who need care every day. My hope is to get treated so that I can continue supporting my family.”
