Addah is a 50-year-old small-scale farmer from Uganda. She primarily farms beans and sorghum. She has visited many health centers over the years with her husband by her side, undergoing myomectomy and herniorrhaphy surgeries about six years ago, but she is still experiencing a troubling health condition.
Four years ago, Addah developed a small swelling near her umbilical cord that has been increasing in size slightly over time. Recently, she also started feeling pain at the site of the mass and is concerned. Fortunately, Addah could travel to our medical partner’s care center for treatment. On May 5th, surgeons will remove the mass. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $145 to fund this procedure.
Addah shared: “I hope to live a normal and comfortable life once again after surgery. I will continue with farming to be able to take good care of myself and my family.”
