Rose is a 46-year-old farmer. She is a widow with four children who are all married and self-employed. She practices small-scale farming, however, her ability to work has been limited in the past year.
For one year, Rose has been experiencing pain, abnormal bleeding, headaches, and backaches. Rose was diagnosed with multiple uterine myomas, a type of noncancerous growth in her uterus. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a type of surgery that will alleviate her symptoms by removing her uterus. Her family is unable to raise funds for her treatment and is appealing for assistance.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Rose’s surgery. On June 1st, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Rose will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
Rose says, “I will thank God when am operated and I live well with good health and be able to resume farming.”
