Prominent Masvingo poet, Abel Mauchi popularly known as ‘Shefu Mudhesve’ is appealing to well-wishers to assist him with his growing medical bill after he fell ill from a condition that is causing him to vomit blood since November 15.

Mauchi said he started vomiting blood during the night of November 15 before going to Nemamwa clinic the following day where he was given a drip and some injections but his condition continued to deteriorate forcing him to visit doctors at Morgenster Mission Hospital.

“I felt like I wanted to vomit on Monday night and I was surprised that my vomit was covered in blood. I went to Nemamwa clinic the following day where I was placed on drip and had some injections administered.

“The situation got worse so today (November 17) I am going to Morgenster hospital where I am going to be examined by a doctor since the actual problem has not yet been figured out. Now, I am failing to eat.

He said he is appealing to well-wishers for financial assistance since he is commuting to seek medical assistance on a daily basis.

“I am appealing to any well-wishers who may want to help me with any amount of money so that I can get the treatment and be able to travel to seek medication,” said Mauchi.

Mauchi is currently staying in Matuvi village, Gutu South ward 28 with his wife and two children and a constrained budget has forced him to travel alone to hospital.

TellZim News once published a story about a man living with albinism Hamilton Muto seeking financial assistance for a cancerous growth removal and he got free medication from Harare Dr Mathew Wazara.

Any well-wishers willing to help Mauchi with any form of assistance can contact him on 0785 223 003, his Ecocash account name is Abel Mauchi.
