Immaculate is a friendly and outgoing small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is a single mother to three daughters. Immaculate and her husband separated, and she and her daughters live with Immaculate’s parents. Her daughters are all studying in school. Immaculate shared that she completed her senior class four before leaving due to a lack of school fees. Now, Immaculate practices small-scale farming to feed her family and works labor jobs to pay for her daughters’ school fees.
For two years, Immaculate has had an epigastric hernia, which causes her to experience symptoms of abdominal pain, swelling, coughing, and discomfort when she lifts heavy objects. Fortunately, on June 6th, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, African Mission (AMH), is requesting $230 to fund Immaculate’s surgery. This procedure will allow Immaculate to live more comfortably and confidently moving forward.
Immaculate says, “I am all that my children are left with; with such illness, I cannot do much. I appeal for your support to undergo surgery for me to continue caring for my children.”
