David joined Watsi on May 21st, 2013. 23 other people also joined Watsi on that day! David's most recent donation traveled 1,900 miles to support Elifranc, from Haiti, .
David has funded healthcare for 2 patients in 2 countries.
Elifranc is a pastor and community leader from Haiti. He runs a vocational school in St. Michele de Attalaye, and loves his job because “it allows him to see folks in Haiti learn skills that will help them earn a living.” Elifranc recently broke his femur in a car accident. To ever walk again, he needs surgery to repair his femur. Our medical partner in Haiti says this is a "desperate situation" for Elifranc, as he relies on a steady income to support his wife and child. For $1,400, we can fund Elifranc’s surgery so he can continue contributing to his community and supporting his family.
This is Amon's second time on Watsi. His first surgery didn't go as planned, so we're hoping to fund his second chance at health. Amon is a 17-year-old boy from Kenya who does well in school and hopes to become a policeman. He's been diagnosed with [cerebral arteriovenus malformation (AVM)](http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/brain-avm/DS01126), a disorder caused by an abnormal cluster of veins in his brain. Amon suffers from severe headaches, dizziness, incoordination, and is at risk of sudden death if his AVM hemorrhages (bleeds into his brain). Last month, Watsi donors [funded surgery](https://watsi.org/profile/7c2ddbf717e5-amon) to remove Amon's AVM. Unfortunately, when Amon's doctors began operating, they realized that his AVM is much larger and more complex than they originally thought. Now, Amon needs a second surgery. His doctors warn that his case is extremely difficult. But they say that if he doesn't have surgery, it's only a matter of time before his condition "will cause his death." When Amon's father found out that Watsi donors were going to have the opportunity to fund his son's treatment again, he said he was "speechless that people who have never met me and my son would carry our burden in their hearts." Let's show Amon and his family that they're not in this alone.
