KABALE: A 20 – year – Old Woman, Annah Atubasise, a resident of Kyagondo village, Kasheregyenyi parish, Kamugaguzi Sub County in Kabale District, is struggling to raise over 30 Million shillings to save her and her two months old twins.
Atubasise has been diagnosed with Eclampsia, HELLP syndrome, and two other serious medical conditions, rendering her unconscious and unable to care for herself and her two-month-old twins since the day of their birth.
Atubasise is unconscious and is currently being cared for by her impoverished family members at their home in Kyagondo village. Her husband, Jonathan Taremwa, and mother-in-law, Jovia Tindinyeka, narrate the difficult journey they have faced since Atubasise gave birth in early December at Kasheregyenyi Health Center.
They says that following her delivery, She was transferred to Kabale Regional Referral Hospital and then to Mbarara Regional Referral Hospital, where her complex medical conditions were diagnosed.
Despite efforts, financial constraints forced the family to discharge Atubasise and her twins from the hospital after two weeks. Tragically, Atubasise has been unable to breastfeed her twins as she remains unconscious.

Meanwhile, the Kabale District health office, in collaboration with Rugarama Hospital, has stepped in to assist. They have evacuated the malnourished twins from their home, ensuring they receive medical care. Alfred Besigensi, the Kabale district health educator, expresses hope for the twins’ well-being under medical supervision but emphasizes the continued need for support from well-wishers.

Dr. Esther Rutaremwa, the medical superintendent of Rugarama Hospital, notes the twins’ severe malnutrition, with weights far below normal for their age.
