Murungi is a farmer who is married and a mother to 3 children - 2 sons who works as a nurse and another a teacher. Her daughter was a teaching but lost her job and is now married and working as a small-scale farmer. Murungi does farming together with her husband but being that they have limited land, they mostly grow food to feed their family but when need calls, they sell off some to generate an income for the family.
Since ten years ago, Murungi has been experiencing severe bleeding has been diagnosed with uterine myomas. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Murungi’s surgery. On September 27th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Murungi will be able to finally resume her daily activities free of pain.
Murungi says: “I pray that my health gets well because 10 years is too long to live in such suffering, but I hope with your support, all will be well.”
