Dinavence is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She studied up to the second grade, but had to drop out of school due to a lack of school fees when her mother died and her aunt was unable to support her. Now, she practices farming together with her husband. She is a mother of five children who also were not able to go beyond primary school with their education.
For five years, Dinavence has been experiencing severe lower abdominal pains. She has been diagnosed with chronic pelvic inflammatory disease with endometriosis. She visited Rushoroza Hospital and surgery was recommended but she cannot afford it. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $319 to fund Dinavence’s surgery. On November 15th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at Rushoroza Hospital. Once recovered, Dinavence will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Dinavence says, “I pray that I may get well through surgery because I can no longer take good care of myself and my family in my current medical condition. I pray for a successful surgery. After my healing, I will continue with farming.”
