Duncan underwent surgery on his right leg.

Duncan underwent surgery and it was successful. The treatment will be of great help and impact on him as he will be able to walk. For the last year, he has been using a wheelchair to walk and now he will be able to walk and continue with his life like other people.

“I am grateful to God, to CURE hospital, and Watsi and AMH for the support. I now feel I can walk after one year of walking through a wheelchair. May the almighty God bless you and continue with helping needy patients,” Duncan told us.

Duncan is a 30-year-old man who is the 3rd and last born in his family from Rita Village, Kathiani, Machakos County. Duncan completed his studies last year at Kenya College of Accountancy (KCA). His passion is to become a competent accountant and work in government offices.

While on his daily routine and walking through town dropping his CV, he suffered an accident on the road and the vehicle that knocked him sped off. He was taken to Kenyatta National Hospital where he underwent multiple surgeries. Due to financial constraints, he was discharged without further interventions. He currently uses a wheelchair to get around, a condition which I making him live an uncomfortable life–a life he had not even imagined or thought he would have.

Duncan came to Watsi Medical Partner’s care center CURE Hospital this month and was scheduled to undergo 3 different surgeries: Rt distal femur, Rt proximal tibia, and Orif of Rt distal humerus. The family is in dire need of help for surgery to take place. They have gone to different places seeking for help but they haven’t received any. Watsi’s partner met Duncan at a clinic in the Machakos area and he asked for help.

“I am pleading for support from well-wishers to help me undergo surgery and resume my normal life,” Duncan told us.
