Benjamin is a 32-year-old man from Malawi. He lives with his wife and their two young children. He works as a farmer in order to support his family.
Recently, Benjamin developed an inguinal hernia. This means that his intestines are protruding through a gap in his abdominal wall. This causes him tremendous pain and makes it difficult for him to work. Benjamin underwent surgery at a local health center, but the surgery was performed incorrectly. The operation left him with an infected wound and experiencing more pain than he had before surgery. He came to our medical partner’s care center in search of assistance, and they were able to disinfect his wound. He is now able to undergo surgery to properly fix his hernia.
Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting $334 to fund Benjamin’s operation. He is scheduled for surgery at our medical partner’s care center, Nkhoma Hospital, on August 22. After treatment, he will be able to return to his family free of pain.
“Thank you for this support,” Benjamin says.
