Abzeli is a farmer from Malawi. Abzeli lives with his wife, and they have ten children. Due to his advanced years, Abzeli’s grown children do the labor-intensive farm work, and he focuses on raising goats to supplement the family income. In his down time, he likes to sit and spend quality time with his wife.
Since 2015, Abzeli 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 Abzeli’s surgery. On January 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. Abzeli and his family were very happy to find out his surgery would be funded. Because of a lack of funds, they were concerned that he would never get his procedure.
He says, “Thank you Watsi for the support.”
