about Khorn's recovery.

March 10, 2020

Khorn is a 65-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. She has two sons, two daughters, and four grandchildren. Her favorite activity is to visit the local pagoda with her friends.

Two years ago, Khorn developed entropion of the eyelids. This means that her eyelids are always drooping and turned inwards. It is difficult for her to see clearly and she experiences constant irritation.

Khorn traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On March 10th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a corrective procedure to repair her eyelids. Now, Khorn needs help to raise $225 to fund this procedure.

She said, “I hope that the irritation, tearing, and burning in my eyes will stop and I can help around the house again.”

Nelson

Nelson is a small business owner from Kenya and a father of four children aged between 1 and 16 years. He operates a butchery in Komarock where he has employed someone to help him after the accident. The wife and children are currently living with his parents in Muranga. His wife is not in any employment and their family solely depends on his business. Nelson lives in a rental house in Komarock and his earnings are not sufficient to meet the cost of living and pay for his surgery. In 2017 Nelson was involved in a road traffic accident in Komarock as he was coming from work. He was rushed to KNH hospital where he underwent surgery. Later his surgical site got an infection and a plan for nail placement to help his fracture was agreed on. He went to St Peter’s Uthiru in 2018 where he underwent the surgery and it was successful. He didn’t heal well so he came to Kijabe Hosopital for clinic where he was booked for surgery. He underwent a 1st stage and 2nd stage bone transport in 2019 and this was funded by the national health insurance fund. Currently, he has an infection and is due for urgent debridement and washout to ensure he can heal. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Nelson receive treatment. On June 3rd, surgeons will perform a debridement and skin graft procedure. If not treated, Nelson will be at risk of further wound infection that could lead to amputation. Now, Nelson needs help to fund this $1,242 procedure. ‘I will be happy to go back to work being the sole breadwinner of our family.’ Nelson said.
