Lackson is a farmer from Malawi. He lives with his wife on their small farm, and they have four grown children and many grandchildren. Lackson raises livestock to supplement the family income, and in his free time he enjoys attending church with his family.
Since June 2017, Lackson has been experiencing pain and urinary difficulty. These symptoms are caused by an enlarged prostate, a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia. He needs to undergo a prostate resection surgery, a procedure in which surgeons will remove part of the enlarged gland.
Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting $733 to fund Lackson’s surgery. On April 3, he will undergo prostate surgery at Nkhoma Hospital, our medical partner’s care center. The requested money pays for supplies, medications, and two weeks of hospital stay. Lackson was thrilled to learn his surgery would be funded and he is looking forward to going home pain-free.
He says, “Thank you for this, Watsi.”
