Irine is a young mother from Kenya. She is a green grocer at a local market. She sells vegetables and fruits.

Recently, Irine was injured and visited our medical partner’s care center. Upon arrival, she underwent an x-ray and was diagnosed with a tibia fibula fracture. It is difficult for Irene to walk and take care of her children.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On May 4, Irine will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help Irine walk comfortably again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $771 to fund this procedure.

Irine says, “I am worried about my health, I want to receive treatment.”
