Lyness is a 46-year-old soybean farmer from a village in Malawi. She is a widow who lives with her six children and five grandchildren. In her free time, Lyness enjoys talking and laughing with her children. She also loves singing with her friends.
Three years ago, Lyness developed a painful hernia, which prevented her from living her normal life. Her family could not afford surgery, so Lyness lived with the pain for three years. Fortunately, she recently visited our medical partner’s hospital, Nkhoma Hospital. She underwent a hernia repair procedure on December 22. Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting $327 to fund this surgery.
Lyness and her family are thrilled that she will return to her farm and family pain-free.
“Thank you so much!” says Lyness.
