Orishaba is a 30-year-old farmer from Uganda. She has three children, two of whom are currently in school, and is currently expecting her fourth child. Her youngest was born in 2021 and is still at home. Orishaba works as a farmer and primarily grows crops for home consumption. She sells any excess to earn a living. Orishaba’s husband is a boda boda driver, and they live together in a two-room rental house. During her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family.
Due to the short period between her current pregnancy and her last pregnancy, Orishaba’s Doctor’s recommended she deliver via a caesarean section so that doctors can ensure the safety of both her and her child. However, Orishaba is currently unable to fund the procedure herself.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help Orishaba. On June 8th, Orishaba will undergo a C-Section at AMH’s care center. This procedure will cost $252, and Orishaba needs your support.
Orishaba says, “I expect to deliver well once I am given your support because the hospital bill is all I was worried about most.”
