Jenifer is a farmer. She is a cheerful person by nature and enjoys singing at her church. Jenifer is married and a mother of three sons and three daughters. Two of her daughters are married and work as small-scale farmers, while her last daughter is still in school. Her eldest son is a carpenter, while her other two sons are in school as well. Jenifer and her husband earn their living from small-scale farming.
For about two years, Jenifer has been experiencing unexplainable bleeding and lower abdominal pain. When medication did not help, Jenifer was referred to the care center at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH). Upon review, she was diagnosed with a cervical polyp, and doctors recommend a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. Jenifer is afraid that, with continuous bleeding, she might experience anemia and other complications.
On November 4th, Jenifer will undergo gynecological surgery at AMH’s care center. Upon recovery, Jenifer will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. AMH is requesting $219 to fund Jenifer’s surgery.
Jenifer shared, “My dream is to educate my children until they complete their studies. With your help and support, my dream will be accomplished as I will be treated and be healthy.”
