Alphatina is a mother of two children from Kenya. She suffered burns when the kerosene stove she was using blew up in July 2016. She healed with contractures on her neck, and she is not able to move her head freely

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Alphatina receive treatment. On July 22, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery. Now, she needs help to fund this $1,176 procedure.

Alphatina says, “I would want to be well and continue bringing up my children together with my husband.”

Elizabeth

Two weeks ago, Elizabeth sustained a fracture of the tibia fibula after a fall on her right leg. She was taken to county referral hospital where she was admitted and a back slab was fixed to stabilize her fracture as she waits to be operated. Ten days later, there were no signs of her being treated because the family didn’t have money needed for the surgery. The fracture site developed blisters which later ruptured and formed wounds. Elizabeth's family requested to be referred to AIC Kapsowar hospital hoping they will receive help because they were worried about her condition. Elizabeth was brought to our hospital accompanied by a few family members. An X-ray was done on arrival which confirmed the fracture of the proximal tibia fibula. After a social worker's assessment, Elizabeth was admitted as she waits to be operated. Elizabeth is a mother of four girls. Her daughters are all married and they live with their husbands in the upcountry. Elizabeth's husband Joseph is old and he cannot perform any duties at home such as farming. Elizabeth is the breadwinner of the family since she tends to the farm. She feels his husband is now suffering because they don’t have enough food in the home and they only depend on farming. Elizabeth requires urgent surgery to fix her fracture but she cannot afford medical treatment due to lack of funds. $968.00 is needed for her to continue with treatment. The family is requesting for financial support to help Elizabeth get treatment required. Elizabeth’s daughter says, “Mum is sleeping helplessly in bed, we have nothing to offer for her surgery. I hope she gets treated, she really deserves a good life.”
