Moureen Nabuuma, a widow and mother of five children whose cry for help was published on the New Vision website and social media platforms, has appreciated Vision Group readers who sent her support in terms of money. 

"I am very happy and grateful that after my story was shared on the New Vision website in July, good Samaritans have supported me, and so far, I have received more than sh670,000, from which I have managed to rent a room in Nansana," said Nabuuma.

Nabuuma is paying sh150,000 for rent per month. She used some of the money she was sent by our readers, to buy crutches, food and medication.

 

 

Nabuuma who is now a resident of Nansana, Kabumbiri, expects to start a business in case she gets more help, from which she hopes to make money to take care of herself and her five children as well as pay rent.

BACKGROUND

Nabuuma says she was knocked by a speeding car in December 2019 while crossing the road from work at Kasubi, in Rubaga division.

She was rushed to the hospital where she spent a couple of months before 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 said.

Nabuuma is still undergoing treatment and has to visit the 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 landlord where was renting was demanding her over sh1.2m and she was told to vacate the house if she was not able to come up with the money," she said.

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.
