Meet 63-year-old Sarah: a small-scale farmer, living with her husband in Uganda. She is the mother of four children. Together, she and her husband make a living from a banana and coffee plantation, even though the available land limits the size of their holding. Sarah enjoys tending to her goats and performing household chores, when she isn’t farming.
Sarah’s life changed drastically two years ago when she developed a swelling on her right arm. This condition has caused her to experience sensations of pins and needles, and paralysis of the arm. Consequently, she cannot sweep, lift objects, or engage in strenuous activities. Initially, she attempted traditional remedies, but they provided no relief.
Sarah sought help from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare. On August 8th, surgeons at Karoli Lwanga Hospital, Nyakibale will remove the mass. Now, Sarah needs your help to raise $137 to fund this procedure.
Sarah says: “Honestly, I am becoming lame, I can’t do anything at home, yet my husband is suffering a stroke. I have to take care of him; I kindly appeal for your support for the success of my surgery.”
