Amina is a 48-year-old woman who works as a nanny. She accounts for only one family relative, a cousin. The rest of her family, including her grandparents and her mother, who was also an only child, have unfortunately passed away.
Amina became really tearful when she started sharing her story. From a young age, her menses have been heavy and painful. This condition has intensified over the past year. She explained that she has struggled with her condition for so long to the extent of giving up on getting any treatment. Amina has been experiencing severe bleeding, lower abdominal pains, dizziness and headache. She has also been treated for anemia and depression. She has been diagnosed with multiple fibroids and needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus to finally help her heal.
Our medical partner African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF) is requesting $755 to fund Amina’s surgery scheduled for July 26th. Once recovered, Amina will be able to live her lifer free of pain.
“I am so desperate and alone. I kindly plead for support so that at least my health can be back to normal, and I can resume my job and support myself,” said Amina.
