Mwaiwawo is a single mother of three from Malawi. She is a cook by profession and works on her farm.
Since November of last year, Mwaiwawo has been experiencing abdominal pain and abnormal bleeding. She has been diagnosed with uterine fibroids. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting $650 to fund Mwaiwawo’s surgery. On April 18, she will undergo gynecological surgery at Nkhoma Hospital, our medical partner’s care center. The requested money pays for supplies, medications, and seven nights of hospital stay.
She says, “After meeting with my community and trying to do extra piece work also, I was still unable to afford the surgery I need. I am so grateful for this program to assist me!”
