Augustino is a 66-year-old man from Malawi. Augustino works as a small scale farmer and lives with his wife, and they have four grown children and ten grandchildren. In addition to his farm, Augustino also raises chickens and goats. When he has free time, Augustino likes to go to his local parish with his family.
For three years, Augustino has had a bilateral inguinal hernia. This condition causes Augustino a variety of problems; it is painful and difficult for him to go to the bathroom, and he is in pain almost all of the time. Because the family does not have the money for surgery, Augustino was thrilled to be introduced to Watsi, and he is so happy to know that he will have his hernia repaired.
With the help of our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, Augustino is scheduled to receive his treatment on May 18. He says, “I wish to be well and I thank you for helping me.”
