Evas is a 45-year-old farmer from Uganda and a mom to three children. Evas and her husband separated many years ago. She lives with her parents and practices farming to help care for them.
Evas has been experiencing swelling in her abdomen for quite some time. She recently began experiencing severe pain that makes it impossible for her to do her daily activities, so she visited our medical partner’s hospital. The doctors diagnosed her condition as uterine fibroids and shared that she needs surgery to finally heal. On January 19th, Evas will undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $219 to fund this procedure. Once recovered, Evas will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain.
She shared: “I find it difficult to do my activities due to the condition. I will be very glad to have relief from this problem. I will resume farming after surgery.”
