Zione is mother of two from Malawi. She is a widow who lives with her two children. Zione runs a small farm, and she spends her days caring for her home, farm, and family. In her free time, she likes to go to her local church and worship with her children and family.
Since January, Zione has been experiencing severe abdominal pain and abnormal bleeding. 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 Zione’s surgery. On February 13, 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. Zione was very relieved to find out her procedure would be funded, as she has a limited income and could not afford the surgery.
She says, “Thank you for this support.”
