David underwent fracture repair surgery.

David had a successful revision ORIF Left Humerus surgery. David who was involved in a road traffic accident and sustained multiple fractures is slowly regaining his energy. He is currently on physio exercises to regain his full ambulation. David who was worried about being permanently disable was reassured that he will walk again. He even feels better and by the help of regular physio exercise, David will walk again.

David says, “It was a difficult moment for me, thinking of the severe injuries with no money to pay for my surgery, I thought I was not going to use my hand again. I felt sorry for my family who have always needed my support at home. But thanks to your support, I am regaining my strength. I am looking forward to joining my family and continue supporting them when I recover fully.”

David is a farmer from Kenya. Two weeks ago, David was involved in a road accident and sustained severe injuries on his left leg and left hand. He is not able to use his hand and is in chronic pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On August 2, David will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him work easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.

David says, “Help me stabilize my family economically.”

Collins

Collins is seventh grade student and is looking forward to finishing his primary school studies. He is the second born in a family of three children. His father is a motorbike taxi driver but was involved in an accident and broke his hand and is now unable to work. Their family now relies on Collins' mother who does laundry work and house chores to earn a living for their family. Collins is a happy and talkative boy. When he was young, his parents noticed his health condition took him to a nearby hospital for treatment. There he was examined but was not able to receive care at that time. His parents were not satisfied and went to another hospital where they recommended surgery. His family has not been able to cover the cost and Collins has not yet been treated. Fortunately, their church pastor heard about Collins’ condition and referred them to our medical partner's care center, BethanyKids Hospital. Collins was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Collins has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future. Collins will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on April 12th. AMH is requesting $646 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care. Collins’ mother says, “I used to feel bad about myself previously as I could not afford to cater for my son’s treatment. Now I’m happy with the progress and what God is doing in Collins’ life. We hope for the best with the surgery.”
