John underwent fracture repair surgery.

By the time he went home he could walk with the help of crutches. Soon he will be able to walk again and possibly go back to playing his favorite game of football.

“I am very happy for this successful surgery. I am hopeful that soon I will be able to walk again. I can’t wait to see myself playing football again. Thanks to Watsi,” he says.

John is a student from Kenya. He is the third born in a family of four. John loves playing football. His father is a mechanic at the local shopping center, while his mother is a housewife.

John recently got into a motorcycle accident, which left him with a fracture of the left tibia. It is difficult for him to walk without support, and he is in chronic pain

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On July 12, John will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him walk easily, and he will be able to play football again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.
