Edivinah is a 47-year-old widow from Uganda and a mother of one child. During high school, Edivinah sustained a long-term spinal injury following a strike at school. She works as a nurse but cannot practice currently due to her condition.
For two years, Edivinah has been experiencing severe lower abdominal pain, backaches, and other worrisome symptoms. This condition makes it challenging for her to move and practice as a nurse, thus impacting her ability to earn a living for herself and her daughter. Edivinah’s condition has been diagnosed as dysfunctional uterine bleeding. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus, to heal.
On September 5th, she will undergo surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, Edivinah will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain! Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $219 to fund Edivinah’s surgery.
Edivinah said, “I am really in your hands to have my condition treated in your favor. I will be very grateful as I resume my usual job to earn a living for me and my daughter.”
