Evalyne is a farmer and is married with eight children; the youngest of whom are still in primary and secondary schools. Her husband is a primary school teacher while Evalyne works on her small piece of land to make ends meet.
For the past six months, Evalyne has been experiencing lower abdominal pain and back pain. She had a subtotal hysterectomy previously due to the fibroids. However, the symptoms persisted and she came to Nyakibale Hospital hoping to be helped. She has been diagnosed with severe uterine fibroids. She is afraid of the cost of surgery and appeals for help so that she can undergo a total hysterectomy.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $219 to fund Evalyne’s surgery. On October 26th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Evalyne will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain and symptoms.
Evalyne says “I cannot wait to have my condition treated because it has made me have low self-esteem and I no longer feel I can do anything productive. I request for the support to enable me to resume farming after surgery.”
