Josophati is a farmer from Malawi. He lives with his wife, and they have five grown children. Jospophati spends his days tending his goats, and he likes to spend quiet time chatting with his wife.
Since October 2017, Josophati 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 Josophati’s surgery. On February 8, 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. Josophati was thrilled to learn his surgery would be funded. He is looking forward to no longer dealing with the pain associated with his condition
He says, “Thank you Watsi for this support.”
