Salina is a farmer from Kenya who is married and has eight children. Salina is a farmer and life is difficult for her and her family. Her three children dropped out of school due to lack of school fees. Salina and his husband sold their only piece of land so that they could cover the cost of education and basic needs for their remaining children.

A month ago, Salina fell on a slippery ground around her homestead and sustained injury on her left hand. She visited a nearby facility near her home but they were unable to treat her condition. Salina was referred to our hospital but she was unable to come due to lack of finances at home. A month later, Salina has come to hospital when her condition is getting worse. Her hand is swollen, has pain and she can’t do any duties at home.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On November 7th, Salina will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This surgery will help her heal well and be able to work again Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $771 to fund this procedure.

Salina says, “I love family especially my children, I am worried that they might stay without food. I hope I will heal soon so that I can continue providing and supporting my family.”
