Nephitali is a 39-year-old farmer from Malawi. When he is not working on his family’s small farm or as a driver, he likes to spend time with his wife and two children and chat with his village friends.
Two months ago, Nephtali began to experience great pain in his abdomen. He developed a swelling in the region and was unable to dig or do any heavy lifting, making his work on the farm much more difficult. Nephitali came to our medical partner’s care center, Nkhoma Hospital, and was diagnosed with an inguinal hernia. He will undergo surgery on January 17.
“I have no fear of the procedure,” he says. “I am just ready for surgery!”
Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting $327 to cover the cost of the operation, medication, and six nights of hospital stay. Once his hernia surgery is complete, Nephitali is expected to make a full recovery and live a normal life.
