Austine is a farmer with six children from Malawi. He enjoys doing home crafting work in his free time and playing with his 12 grandchildren.
Since before 2014, Austine 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 Austine’s surgery. On September 25, 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. He is expecting good results from the surgery.
He says, “I am thankful for this program which will finally help me after I was turned away by several other hospitals; I hope this program can continue to help others like me. Thank you very much!”
