Catherine is a 27-year-old from Uganda. She is a small business owner operating a retail shop and lives in a rented house where she operates her business. She works hard to earn a living despite having little profit, which sometimes fails to cover her rent. On average, she reports earning about $3 a day. To help supplement this income, her husband also runs a small-scale business selling eggs in a different trading center to support the family. During Catherine’s free time, she enjoys watching movies on her phone.
As the second-born in a family of eight children, Catherine completed her high school studies and decided to get married.
She is currently expecting her second child. She has attended the antenatal clinic at Nyakibale Hospital and her doctors recommend that she deliver via a cesarean section because of her high-risk. This way, doctors can ensure the safety of both mother and child.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Catherine undergo a C-section on November 14th. AMH is requesting $252 to help fund this procedure. She appeals for support to ensure her pregnancy is delivered safely and that she and her baby remain healthy.
Catherine says, “I will be so happy when I deliver my secondborn with your support. I hope to resume my business as I take care of my children.”
