Filesi is a 45-year-old farmer and mother of two from Malawi. Filesi lives with her husband and together they cultivate their land. Filesi is very close to her children and likes to spend her free time with her kids and grandkids.
For the past five years, Filesi has been struggling with an epigastric hernia (in her upper abdomen) as well as an umbilical hernia. These hernias have become progressively worse over time, since the family hasn’t had enough money to pay for the surgeries.
On June 6, Filesi will undergo surgery to repair both hernias. Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting $334 to fund the total cost of the procedure.
After her procedure, Filesi will be able to go back to her normal life and resume daily activities without pain and discomfort.
