Prossy is a small-scale farmer and mother of two from Uganda. This is her fourth pregnancy. Prossy left school after secondary school due to a lack of funds to pay for her school fees. Her husband is a boda boda (motorcycle) driver who transports luggage around their village to earn a living for the family. They own a three-room mud home that is a few kilometers away from Rushoroza Hospital and have been using motorcycles to access the hospital’s services. During her free time, Prossy enjoys spending time with her children.
Prossy is currently expecting her third child. She shared that her first pregnancy resulted in an intrauterine fetal death and her doctors recommend that she deliver via a Caesarean section because of her history. This way, doctors can ensure the safety of both mother and child.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Prossy undergo a C-Section on September 27th. This procedure will cost $214, and Prossy’s family needs your support.
Prossy says, “I pray that I may have a successful surgery with a positive outcome. I will keep farming after I heal so I can support my family.”
