“Thank you so much for this help,” says Betterland.
Betterland is a 60-year-old man who lives in Malawi with his wife, their children, and their large extended family. A devoted husband, Betterland’s favorite thing to do in his downtime is simply to sit and chat with his wife.
Betterland normally supports his family by working as a small-scale farmer. But since June of this year, Betterland has been unable to farm due to pain associated with an enlarged prostate. Because he cannot work, Betterland has been worried about the family’s finances—and paying for the treatment he needs is, unfortunately, not a possibility for them.
But we can help. By raising $733, we can cover the cost of Betterland’s prostate resection surgery, scheduled for August 17. This fundraising total will also cover the expenses of Betterland’s 17-day hospital stay, medications, and roundtrip transportation to the hospital.
When Betterland and his family learned that he would be able to receive the operation he needs, they were very relieved. Betterland is excited that now he will have this painful problem fixed and he will soon be able to return to farming with his sons.
