Lekeleni is a single mother of five from Malawi. She lives alone but enjoys going to church in her free time. She has four small grandchildren.
Since June of last year, Lekeleni has been experiencing a swollen abdomen. She has been diagnosed with ovarian cysts, which are fluid-filled sacs on the ovaries. She needs to undergo an ovarian cystectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will excise the cysts.
Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting $541 to fund Lekeleni’s surgery. On May 2, she will undergo gynecological surgery at Nkhoma Hospital, our medical partner’s care center. The requested money pays for supplies, medications, and seven nights of hospital stay.
She says, “I am really looking forward to being fine so that I can live well and continue working again.”
