Hope is is a confident and eloquent woman who carries a wealth of stories within her from Uganda. She is a mother and a nurturer to nine children, comprising four sons and five daughters. Despite the lack of emphasis on education during her generation, Hope, driven by a deep sense of determination, ensured that her children received the education she never had the opportunity to attain. Although formal education eluded her, she possesses the ability to read and write, a skill she acquired while educating her children. Hope's life revolves around her role as a farmer. In her free moments, she engages in domestic chores and finds solace in activities like weeding around her home. Her journey has been marked by challenges, including losing her father in 1987. Yet, through her dedication to farming, she managed to provide for her children, shaping their futures with the limited earnings she garnered from her agricultural endeavors. Recently, she faced a distressing health issue—a swelling around her shoulders, accompanied by numbness, paralysis, and pain upon touch. Over the past year, her condition has worsened to the point where she can no longer carry anything by hand. Initially, the swelling was painless, leading her to avoid seeking medical attention. However, as her symptoms intensified, she was brought to the hospital, where a doctor examined her and diagnosed her with a supra-scapular lipoma. On October 10th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Hope needs help to raise $137 to fund this procedure. Hope says, “I hope the pain will be no more; I will be relieved from this and will be able to resume my farming.”
