Bertha is a woman from Malawi. She lives with her daughter, and she helps care for the family’s home and her grandchildren. When Bertha has time to relax, she likes to play with her grandchildren and talk with her daughter, Dorothy.
Since November, Bertha has been experiencing pain, weakness, and abnormal bleeding. 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 Bertha’s surgery. On January 11, 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. Bertha and her daugther were overjoyed to find out her surgery would be funded. Bertha is now hopeful for the future, and she looks forward to going home and watching her grandchildren grow.
She says, “Thank you. I did not expect this help and it is a gift.”
