Ziporah is a 45-year-old lady from Southwestern Uganda. Together with her husband, she practices subsistence farming. They have 6 children, 5 of whom are still in school and one who is married. Their income is too limited to manage their home affairs and meet medical costs.
For the last 6 months, Ziporah has been experiencing severe abdominal pain and irregular menstrual cycle. The pain had been there for the past 8 years but in the last 6 months, it has been severe. She is worried about suffering from anaemia but it was hard for her family to raise money for her to visit the hospital. When it became challenging for her to do all the daily chores, they managed to visit Nyakibale Hospital for review.
Now Ziporah has been diagnosed with endometrial polyps. The cost of the recommended hysterectomy surgery is too high but our medical partner can help. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is raising $219 to fund Ziporah’s surgery. On September 15th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Ziporah will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Ziporah says “I feel I have reached my last if am not supported. Your support will determine my life as I have no other option. I pray that I get considered and live a good life again as I do my activities farming for a living.”
