Olivia is a 28-year-old small scale farmer from Uganda. She is married and her husband is a boda boda driver, who unfortunately was injured last year. The couple has two children who are both in school, with their youngest in kindergarten. Olivia completed primary school and then worked as a house helper. She later stopped when she got married. Now, Olivia farms on her small piece of land and sometimes does casual labor work in other people’s gardens to earn an income. In her free time, Olivia enjoys spend time with her family.
Olivia is currently expecting her third child. Her doctors recommend that she deliver via a caesarean section because of two previous C-Section scars. This will prevent complications, like uterine rupture, that could arise if she attempts a normal delivery.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Olivia to deliver her baby safely. On March 9th, she will undergo a C-Section at AMH’s care center. Now, Olivia needs help raising $252 to fund her procedure and care.
Olivia shared, “I hope with your support, I will be able to have a successful delivery and I will be able to resume farming in good health.”
