Filipina is a mother and grandmother from Malawi. She spends her days caring for her grandchildren, who live with her in her village, where she also maintains a small farm.
Since last year, Filipina has been experiencing back and abdominal pain. She has been diagnosed with cervical cancer. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus.
Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting $650 to fund Filipina’s surgery. On August 24, she will undergo gynecological surgery at Nkhoma Hospital, our medical partner’s care center. The requested money pays for supplies, medications, and seven nights of hospital stay. She is relieved to be helped through this surgery. Her family looks forward to her recovery, with her grandchildren waiting for her return home.
She says, “I will be able to care for my grandchildren again who depend on me, thank you so much!”
