Fred is a farmer from Malawi. He lives with his wife, and they have three grown children, who help run the family farm. To help supplement the family income, Fred raises chickens. In his free time, he likes to sit and talk with his wife.
Since November 2017, Fred 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 Fred’s surgery. On March 13, 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. Fred and his family were thrilled to find out his surgery would be funded, and he is looking forward to going back to his normal activities pain-free
He says, “Thank you Watsi.”
