Christine joined Watsi on February 14th, 2019. Six months ago, Christine became the 4635th member to automatically support a new Watsi patient every month. Since then, 715 more people have become monthly donors! Christine's most recent donation supported Jean, a man from Kenya, to fund a skin graft.
Christine has funded healthcare for 1 patient in 1 country.
Jean is a young man from Kenya. He is a husband and a father to three children. Jean sustained an injury on his leg, just above the ankle joint. Now, he is in pain and needs to walk with a crutch. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Jean receive treatment. On February 14, surgeons will perform a debridement and skin graft procedure to help him walk easily again. Now, Jean needs help to fund this $1,129 procedure. Jean says, “I wish to go back home and do business there. Begging is quite demeaning but it is the only way to feed my family and educate my kids for now."
