Meet 20-year-old Lynod from Malawi. He lives with his parents who are subsistence farmers, which means that almost all of their livestock and crops are used to meet the family’s basic needs. Lynod’s parents work hard to support their family and take extra care of Lynod as he manages his health.

Lynod has a hydrocele, a fluid-filled sack, that makes it difficult for him to walk. Doctors at our medical partner World Altering Medicine have recommended surgery to remove the hydrocele. The cost of the procedure is $613.

Let’s help to put Lynod and his parents at ease and fund the care he needs.
