Chilamanda is a farmer from Malawi. Chilamanda lives with his wife, and they have six grown children. To supplement the family income, Chilamanda raises goats. In his free time, he likes to relax and listen to the radio.
Since Decemebr 2017, Chilamanda has been experiencing pain and urinary dificulty. 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 Chilamanda’s surgery. On January 9, 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. Chilamanda and his family were thrilled to find out his surgery would be funded, and he is looking forward to going home and being active.
He says, “Thank you.”
