My mother Lydia Mbewe is 87 years old. For a long time she has been well but recently has developed some health issues.
She had blood clots that needed sorting out and when this treatment started she began to bleed heavily internally. Her doctor suggested she see a specialist and in Zimbabwe this is not easy.
I found one in Harare however he is in private practice and he was the only one that could offer the medical services my mum needed.
So I bit the bullet and decided to send her there. Already the few treatments have made a really big improvement to her health but she still has a long way to go to finish the treatment and get to the bottom of the internal bleeding.
I love my mum and I would like to see the best care for her. Public health care in Zimbabwe is in shambles and this is the best shot of giving her quality of life in her old age.
The situation is urgent and I need your help to continue her treatment.
