Scovia is a mother of four. She shared that she separated from her husband three months ago due to domestic violence and is now living alone with two of her children. The other two are with their father, but she pays school fees for all of them. She does so through farming and selling Irish potatoes. Her firstborn is 18 years old and in primary school class seven while her youngest is 11 years old and in the fifth grade.
Since three years ago, Scovia has been experiencing recurring lower abdominal pains accompanied by other challenging symptoms. She has been on medication since then but her condition has not improved. She is at risk of getting anemia and needs surgery which she cannot afford.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $319 to fund Scovia’s surgery. On March 4th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Scovia will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Scovia says, “I have suffered in this condition for a while and need medical intervention. I pray that I may have a successful surgery so that I may be able to live a normal life once again. I will continue with farming for my children’s survival.”
