Gilian is a 32-year-old businesswoman from Uganda. She is married with two children and is currently expecting her third. Gilian completed high school and was passionate about becoming a lawyer, but her academic journey was cut short following her father’s death. She operates a small retail business, while her husband operates a bodaboda (motorcycle) business. Due to limited capital, Gilian shared that her business has suffered losses; thus, she is unable to raise the funds needed for her surgery. During her free time, she enjoys spending time with her children.
Gilian is currently expecting her third child. Her doctors recommended that she deliver via a Cesarean section to ensure the safety of both mother and child. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Gilian undergo a C-Section on February 7th. AMH is requesting $252 to fund this procedure.
Gilian said: “I hope to have a successful delivery once given your support because the only worry I had was how I would be able to pay for my delivery.”
