Sarah is a 30-year-old small-scale farmer and mother of two. Her children were delivered healthy in 2017 and 2022. Sarah had to leave school for financial reasons when she was a child because both her parents passed away. She started tending to people’s gardens for a living until she married, and she continues to farm for a living as best she can. Her husband is a builder. Sarah and her family live in their own semi-permanent house with four rooms. Their circumstances do not provide enough money to pay for Sarah’s needed surgery.
Sarah has experienced worrying symptoms for the past year and doctors have diagnosed a herniation in the pelvic region. Her doctors recommend a uterine prolapse repair surgery.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 8th, Sarah will undergo surgery. This will help get rid of the discomfort and improve her ability to work and her general quality of life. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $220 to fund this treatment.
Sarah says, “If I had money I would have been treated on my own. I ask the donors to support me so that I can regain my quality of life and I live with less or without these complaints. I want to resume with farming after surgery.”
