Moreen is a businesswoman and mom of three from Uganda. One of her children is a student, while the other two are too young to attend school yet. Moreen achieved a records management certificate but has had difficulty securing a job in her field of expertise. Instead, she has started a business, operating a modest retail shop alongside her husband.
Moreen visited our medical partner’s care center because she has been experiencing pins-and-needles sensations, backaches, and a sharp pain that starts from her left side and radiates to her back. She has been having this pain for two years but has been unable to seek medical care due to limited finances. After seeing the doctor, Moreen was diagnosed with a left ovarian mass. She needs to undergo cystectomy treatment to finally heal. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $220 to fund this surgery.
Moreen said, “It will be a blessing when operated on under your support. I believe I will have a successful surgery and be in good health afterward.”
