Doreen is a 24-year-old lady who is expecting a baby. She finished primary six but could not secure funds for further studies, leading to her leave school. She was left with no option other than pursuing housemaid work in Kabale town. After about a year, she returned home and eventually got married. Her husband is a small businessman with a retail shop, though not earning much, while Doreen remains at home cultivating for food consumption. She is the third born in a family of eight children; two are married and self-employed, and the rest are in primary and secondary school. During her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family. She delivered her first baby in 2022 via C-section, but unfortunately, the baby died three days after birth. She reports having had two miscarriages consecutively. During this pregnancy, she has been attending the antenatal clinics and hopes to deliver a healthy baby. Doreen likes to remain happy despite her financial crisis. She appeals for your support to ensure her pregnancy is delivered well and that she has a live and healthy baby, as this child is precious to her and will bring comfort to her life. Her doctors recommend that she deliver via a caesarean section so doctors can ensure the safety of both mother and child. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Doreen undergo a C-Section on December 5th. This procedure will cost $252, and Doreen needs your support. Doreen says, “I wish as well to be called a mother since my mind has been traumatized by my past experience. I hope to deliver a live and healthy baby this time and I will be very happy to get your support.”
