Violet is a mother of six from Malawi. She lives with her husband and spends her free time farming, attending church, and chatting with friends.
For three years, Violet has had a right inguinal hernia. She went to several different hospitals near her home town, none of which could help her. She has been waiting for three years to resolve this condition so she can return to caring for her family. Fortunately, on January 31, she 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 Violet’s surgery. The requested money pays for supplies, medications, and six nights of hospital stay. She is looking forward to returning to farming and would like to also start her own business when she is feeling better.
She says, “I am excited because better health will help me return to my village and work harder!”
