On December 10, Wamutwe was in a road accident that left him with a fractured radius and injuries on his legs and lower jaw. After the accident, he received first aid, and a cast was applied to his injury. Wamutwe has not been about to work since the accident.
Without treatment, he risked infection, a fracture malunion, or permanent disability. Fortunately, Wamutwe underwent an open reduction internal fixation procedure on December 21.
Wamutwe sells boiled pork meat in the local shopping center. His wife is a farm laborer, and they have five children. Wamutwe and his family live on their ancestral land in a three-roomed house. He cannot afford healthcare, so our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $640 to fund this procedure.
“I want to be well to continue providing for my family and wife,” says Wamutwe.
