“My grandchildren are lost without me; I look forward to being there for them and spending more time with them when I get better” says Choipa. Both a grandfather and farmer, Choipa is a 70-year-old male from Malawi.

Choipa has a hydrocele, or buildup of fluid which has caused swollen testes. Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, shares that, “Choipa produces just enough food for his family with nothing to sell to give him money to pay for his treatment.” If left untreated, Choipa will continue to have swelling and be unable to focus on taking care of his grandchildren.

Choipa will be able to receive hydrocele surgery with $631. With this treatment, his testes will return to normal and he will be able to go back to farming and raising his grandchildren.

Let’s help Choipa get healthy!
