Catherine is a smallbusiness woman and mother of four. She pursued a diploma in business administration, but unfortunately, she has been unable to secure a job in her field. As a result, she operates a small retail shop to earn a living. However, due to its remote location in the village and limited capital invested, her income from the shop is limited. To supplement her earnings, she engages in farming. Her husband is involved in the bodaboda (moto-taxi) business and together they reside in a two-room rental house. While they can manage their daily expenses with their combined income, they cannot gather the necessary funds for the surgery that Catherine needs.
Catherine is currently expecting a new baby. Because her pregnancy is high risk and she previously lost another baby to miscarriage, her doctors recommend that she deliver via a cesarean section. This recommendation aims to prevent complications such as uterine rupture, which could be life-threatening. This way, doctors can ensure the safety of both mother and child.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Catherine undergo a C-Section on July 11th. This procedure will cost $252, and Catherine needs your support.
Catherine says, “I am looking forward to a successful delivery, if I am given your support, because I am worried about my hospital bill.”
