Alick is a 63-year-old farmer who lives with his wife. Alick farms and also works as a mechanic to support his family. In his free time, he likes to listen to sports on his radio. Since June of this year, Alick has been having difficulty urinating, a painful problem caused by an enlarged prostate. To restore Alick to his active life and previous health, surgery is necessary, but is beyond the family's financial means. Alick was relieved to be introduced to Watsi. He will undergo prostate surgery on August 10. He now needs help raising $733 to pay for surgery. He says, "Thank you for this support."
Willy is a 22-year-old man from Kenya. He is the the second born in a family of eight children. Willy's parents are peasant farmers. Willy was hit by a vehicle and sustained bilateral hip injuries. Willy has not received any treatment since the accident occurred, due to his family's tight finances. Willy is in pain and cannot stand or walk without support. Willy's family is not able to raise the funds needed for his treatment. Willy's mother says, “Please help my son go for surgery. Even if we went back home, there is no way could raise the money. In fact the money we used to come to the hospital was raised by well-wishers.” Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is seeking $1,231 to fund Willy's surgery. He will undergo surgery to repair his hip injuries on July 10.
