Josphine

Josphine is a middle age woman from Kenya. Josphine fell from a height while carrying water on her back a few days ago. she complained of pain not knowing that she had fractured her clavicle. A day later, Josphine visited our hospital where x-ray imaging confirmed a clavicular fracture. She was admitted for an ORIF surgery. Afraid of the financial lack, Josphine requested a discharge from the hospital but the surgeons were afraid she might not come back for surgery. We planned on sourcing funds for her surgery. Josphine Komen, a widow, has never lost hope in looking after her five children. She has done all sorts of low-status jobs including working in other people’s farm to make sure her children have basic needs including education. She is a strong woman who has stood firm to raise her children after her husband passed away in 2011 after a short illness. Josphine is in need, her condition has restricted her from performing her daily duties of providing for her children. She is appealing for support to access surgery. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 26th, Josphine will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. The ORIF surgery will allow Josphine utilize her hand with ease and reduce chances of further complications Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure. Josphine says, "I am looking forward to quick recovery so that I can continue providing for my children."
