Lucy is a middle-aged woman who lives in her ancestral home in Embu, Kenya. She does small scale farming to support herself and keep herself busy. Lucy has three children but mostly relies on her firstborn son who is a teacher, for support. When she was admitted to the hospital for close to two months, she accumulated a very huge bill and the national health insurance program catered for a third of the bill. Her children had to take out quick loans and do fundraising to help raise the balance to get their mother out of hospital. Now for the final surgery she needs, she has depleted all sources of support and her family is not in a position to raise the required amount of money to cater for their mother’s last surgery for her condition. Early this year, Lucy was diagnosed with cervical cancer stage 1. She underwent surgery and was discharged home in good health. A day later, she was rushed back to the hospital with a swollen abdomen. She was admitted as an emergency, scans were done and it was found that her intestines were injured during the operation. She was rushed to operating theatre and a surgery was done. While in the hospital, the incision wound was infected and her abdomen would swell again. She had two more surgeries trying to correct her condition but it was not helping. The doctors then decided to place a colostomy to help her heal. Her abdomen stopped swelling and the incision wound started healing. At this time, she had stayed in the hospital for more than six weeks and her bill was overwhelming. She recovered well, however, and was relieved to be discharged home. Now she is scheduled to undergo a colostomy closure surgery as the final step in her treatment. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,084 to cover the cost of a colostomy closure for Lucy. The surgery is scheduled to take place on September 7th and, once completed, will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently. Lucy says, “I have never been in this situation before. I want to get well and resume my daily duties in the farm.”

Princess is a beautiful 9-year-old girl and a hard working student. She is the third born in a family of four children. Princess is currently in class one and enjoys learning how to read and write. Despite her condition which makes being active challenging for her, Princess likes running around with other children. She wishes to become a great cook when she grows up. Her parents are both small-scale farmers, growing maize and beans for both food and selling. Their earnings are not enough to cover the cost of treatment needed for their daughter Princess, they need help. Princess was diagnosed with Acquired Right Varus. Her right leg is bowed outward at the knee. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, she has a difficult time playing and doing all she hopes to do. The Watsi community was able to come together to help her access treatment, but she needs a second surgery to fully heal due to the severity of her condition. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $880 to fund this corrective surgery for Princess, which is scheduled to take place on July 12th. Treatment will hopefully restore Princess's mobility, allow her to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease her risk of future complications. Princess’ father says, “She needs another surgery which I still can’t afford to pay. You have been of great support, and I hope you will help make this second surgery possible.”

Dominick is a young boy who is the first-born in a family of three children. His parents are subsistence farmers. He is yet to be enrolled in school because of difficulty he has in walking. Dominick was diagnosed with bilateral genu varus. His legs bow outward at the knees. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, he has difficulty walking. His parents first noticed the bending of the legs as he learnt to walk and took him to the hospital where they were given calcium and vitamin to use, but there was no improvement in his condition. Due to financial challenges, his parents were not able to continue treatment for Dominick. Last year, they decided to bring him to Arusha for special prayers. There, they met an employee of African Mission Healthcare, who advised them to try seeking treatment at their care center ALMC Hospital. Through earlier support, Dominick had a successful surgery that helped correct both of his legs. However, he came back for follow up three months later and his legs were already relapsing, which is limiting his mobility again. Dominick was prescribed calcium to use for three months before a reassessment. It has now been determined that he needs another surgery to help correct his legs. In this surgery the doctors will place implants to help prevent his legs from relapsing again. His parents are asking for support to make his care possible. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $880 to fund corrective surgery for Dominick. The procedure is scheduled to take place on May 6th. Treatment will hopefully restore Dominick's mobility, allow him to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease his risk of future complications. Dominick’s mother says, “Please help us once more. His legs are bending again.”
