Malaki is a farmer from Malawi. He lives with his son. With his children, he runs the family farm, while his wife works in the city to help provide for the family. Malaki raises chickens to supplement the family income. In his free time, he likes to talk with his wife and attend church with his son and grandchildren.
Since 2015, Malaki 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 Malaki’s surgery. On April 5, 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. Malaki and his family were thrilled to find out his surgery would be funded. Malaki is looking forward to going home and again being able to work his farm.
He says, “Thank you.”
