Yobe is a 78-year-old retired Malawian farmer. He lives with his wife and large extended family. He is too old to work in the fields, so now spends his days making mats to sell in the village. When he has downtime, he likes to chat with his village friends.
Since April 2017, Yobe has been experiencing the troubling and painful symptoms associated with an enlarged prostate. He needs surgery, which will help him get back to a normal and healthy life.
Yobe’s family were very upset that they cannot afford the operation necessary to treat Yobe. When the family arrived at Nkhoma Hospital, our medical partner’s care center, they were relieved to hear about the Watsi program.
Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting $733 to fund Yobe’s prostate surgery.
“I have no money to pay for my surgery. I thank you so much for the support,” says Yobe.
