Mbena is a farmer from Malawi. Mbena lives with his wife and five children. When not tending his land, Mbena fetches wood and cares for his animals. When not busy with household chores and farming, Mbena likes to sit and chat with his wife and play with his young children.
Since July 2016, Mbena has had an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him pain, and the protrusion causes Mbena great difficulty when working. Fortunately, on December 5, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at Nkhoma Hospital, our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting $334 to fund Mbena’s surgery. The requested money pays for supplies, medications, and six nights of hospital stay. Mbena and his family were thrilled to learn his surgery would be funded. He is looking forward to going back to working hard for the upcoming planting season.
He says, “Thank you, I am so happy!”
