Godfrey is Godfrey is a father to six and grandfather to 11. from Malawi. He is a retired medical assistant who spends his free time volunteering at a local clinic near his hometown, as well as hanging out with his family and grandchildren.
Since October 2016, Godfrey has been experiencing frequent urination and pain. 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 Godfrey’s surgery. On October 18, 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.
He says, “It is an economic relief to receive this surgery. Having to pay for transport to the hospital is a burden itself so I am happy to not have to worry about the medical bills also. Please continue this service and helping others.”
