Mafken is a father to six children and a grandfather to many grandchildren. from Malawi. He enjoys farming and relaxing at home with his family.
Since April 2017, Mafken 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 Mafken’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, “Thank you for funding my surgery, as I am unable to pay for it myself and I am looking forward to being better soon.”
