Meet Sautso, a 36-year-old businessman from Malawi. Sautso has a brain tumor that causes memory loss, frequent headaches, seizures, and red eyes. He has been unable to do his business and take care of his family as his condition has worsened.

For $1,500, our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, can remove Sautso’s tumor with a surgery called a brain tumor resection. Funding covers direct surgical care as well as lab costs, medicinal costs, and travel costs. Also included are two days of examination in the Intensive Care Unit after the surgery.

Sautso tells us, “I am so excited to have the operation done as this will improve my life. I will now be able to go back to my normal life, doing business operations so I can continue supporting my family.”
