Iwalani is a farmer from Malawi. He is a retired police officer who now runs a small farm with his wife. They have two children and many, many grandchildren. Iwalani enjoys tending his land, attending church with his family, and playing games with his village friends.
Since January 2018, Iwalani 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 Iwalani’s surgery. On March 8, 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. Iwalani was thrilled to find out his surgery would be funded. He is ready to have his procedure and get back to his normal life.
He says, “Thank you.”
