Diana is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is a mother to two children, both delivered through cesarean section themselves, and are studying in nursery school. Although she completed her senior year in school, Diana was unable to continue her education due to a lack of school fees. Initially, she stayed at home and focused on farming until she got married at the age of 17. Now she engages in farming on her small plot of land alongside her husband. They cultivate crops to feed their family and sell the surplus to generate income. During her free time, she enjoys spending time with family.
Diana is currently expecting her third child. She’s been receiving care throughout her pregnancy from the hospital and her doctors recommend that she deliver via a caesarean section because of her higher-risk for complications. This way, doctors can ensure the safety of both mother and child.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Diana undergo a C-Section on May 26th. This procedure will cost $252, and Diana needs your support.
Diana says, “I hope to deliver a live baby and hope for good health once I am operated.”
