Peter is a farmer from Malawi. Peter lives with his wife, and he spends his days tending his land and raising livestock to help supplement the family income. When Peter isn’t busy with his animals and his farm, he likes to spend time with his three grandchildren telling them stories.
Since January 2017, Peter 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 Peter’s surgery. On November 16, 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. Peter was thrilled when he found out his surgery would be funded. He is looking forward to going back to his farm and playing with his grandchildren again.
He says, “Thank you for your support; I had no money to pay for this surgery.”
