Misheck is a retired farmer from Malawi. Misheck lives with his son. Due to his advanced age, he is no longer able to actively farm, but he enjoys watching and playing with his grandchildren, talking with his adult children, and listening to gospel music on his radio.
Since 2009, Misheck has been experiencing difficulty urinating, pain, and numbness in his lower extremities. 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 Misheck’s surgery. On November 2, 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. Misheck and his son, Billy, were thrilled to learn that he would receive his operation.
He says, “We appreciate you extending your hand to help us. There are many who need this operation and Watsi is doing wonderful work!”
