25-year-old Loyce is a mother of two, living with her family in Uganda. Loyce works as a casual laborer on local farms, while her husband drives a Boda Boda taxi.
Loyce is currently expecting her third child. Her doctors have recommended that she deliver via a Caesarean section, because of the scarring and risks left by her two prior C-sections. Loyce is not able to raise the funds needed for the surgery, but she understands that she is at risk of a uterine rupture.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Loyce undergo a C-section on January 19th, at Karoli Lwanga Hospital, Nyakibale. This procedure, which is the best option for protecting the health of both Loyce and her child, will cost $252, and Loyce needs your support to cover the costs involved.
Loyce says: “I will be privileged to deliver under your support and thus able to resume with my usual activities.”
