January 10, 2022

Rose is a farmer and a single mother of two. She does small-scale farming, which mostly gives her and her family food to eat, leaving a little for them to sell. They live in a village where most work on farms and depend on seasonal farm products like mangoes to earn a living. Her family lives in a grass-thatched house.

Rose came to the hospital after having fallen while walking. She sustained an injury to her left upper arm with an open wound, pain, bleeding, and inability to use the arm. After the doctor’s assessment with help of an X-Ray, Rose was diagnosed with an open left distal humerus fracture and surgery was recommended. She is in pain and cannot use her left hand to perform any activities. Rose is currently totally dependent on her elderly mother. Their family is unable to pay for her surgery due to their socio-economic status as they depend on seasonal farm products to raise a basic level of income.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On January 11th, Rose will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will relieve her of the pain and restore the functionality of the hand. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $941 to fund this procedure.

Rose says, “I am in pain, I have nothing to pay for the surgery. My hope is to receive treatment and be able to use my hand again.”
