Seketsani is farmer from Malawi. He lives with his wife, and together with their five grown children, they run a small farm. Due to his illness, Seketsani can no longer farm, so he spends his days fetching wood for the family. In his free time, he likes to go to church and worship with his family.
Since May 2018, Seketsani has been experiencing pain and urinary difficulty. These symptoms are caused by an enlarged prostate, a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia. He needs to undergo a prostate resection surgery, a procedure in which surgeons will remove part of the enlarged gland.
Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting $733 to fund Seketsani’s surgery. On June 5, he will undergo prostate surgery at Nkhoma Hospital, our medical partner’s care center. The requested money pays for supplies, medications, and two weeks of hospital stay. Seketsani was thrilled to find out his surgery would be funded, and he is eager to get back to working his land and again enjoying his life.
He says, “I am so happy to get this surgery and I thank you!”
