Ivy is a 43-year-old woman from a village in Malawi. She and her husband have four children, and they live on a maize farm. When they are not working, they enjoy spending time together as a family, talking and laughing.
One year ago, Ivy developed uncomfortable gynecological symptoms. She learned that she needed to undergo a hysterectomy, but she could not afford the cost of surgery. When she learned about Watsi, Ivy and her family were relieved and happy.
On December 6, Ivy underwent a hysterectomy. She is expected to make a full recovery and live a healthy life with her family. Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting $643 to fund this procedure.
“My family has been worried about my health,” says Ivy. “I am thankful to Watsi.”
