Hosea is a motorcycle taxi operator from Kenya. He is a hardworking man.

In early December, Hosea was hit by a falling tree while he was riding a motorcycle. He sustained a severe injury to his right leg. He cannot stand or walk with his right leg.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On December 20, Hosea will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him walk easily again once he is recovered. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.

Hoasea says, “My ultimate dream is to work in the matatu (public transport vehicles) industry in whichever capacity if I can find.”
