Richard is an outgoing 60-year-old man from Kenya. He has two children, whom he is supporting through his casual work as a mechanic. Richard was recently hit by a bus and sustained a closed femur fracture in his left leg. He was brought to a local hospital for treatment.
On October 30, Richard will undergo open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) surgery to repair his left leg. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, requests $998 to help fund the treatment on top of the $104 contribution from Richard’s family. ORIF treatment will enable Richard to walk again, resume his job as a mechanic, and support his family. If not treated, he may develop complications with delayed healing and malunion.
Richard says, “I am hopeful that Watsi will support me so that I can go back and take care of my children since I am their only hope.”
