KAMPALA- A 40-year-old woman, who lost her leg in a hit-and-run accident, is seeking help after her landlord asked her to vacate his premises.

Maureen Nabuuma, a single mother of five, who lives in Kawala, a Kampala city suburb, says she was knocked by a speeding car in December last year while she was crossing the road from work at Kasubi, in Rubaga division.

She says she was taken to the hospital where she spent a couple of months before the doctors settled for cutting off her right leg.

"That was the beginning of my tears. I had to sell everything I had so as to get medication and feed my five children," Nabuuma says.

Nabuuma, also a widow, is still undergoing treatment and has to visit hospital twice a month, but she is unable to because she has no more money for further medication and transportation.

"To make matters worse, the land lord is demanding over sh1.2m and has told me to leave if I cannot pay up," she says.

Before the accident, Nabuuma was selling beverages in Kasubi market. She has since sold off her fridge and spent all the capital she had on treatment. She appeals to any kind-hearted Ugandans to come to her and her children's rescue.

 

To help Nabuuma, reach her on 0752516363.
