Jane is a young student from Kenya. She is the youngest in a family of three children.

In early November, Jane was playing and she fell and hurt her legs. She sustained a complete closed fracture of her left femur. She is in pain and not able to walk without support.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On November 15, Jane will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help her walk easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.

“I just want to see my daughter happy and walking well again. I ask for help from Watsi so that she can be treated and heal before going back to school in January,” Jane’s mother says.

Davis

Davis is a bright young man from Uganda. He is the thirdborn in a family of five children, all ranging in age from 15 to 30. His parents are small-scale farmers, and they own a three-room mud house for shelter. Davis completed secondary school class four, but he did not proceed because he wanted to prioritize and take care of his health before returning to his studies. For over five years, Davis has dealt with a right inguinal hernia. The hernia started as a small, painless swelling, but it has progressively increased in size. His parents initially were not concerned because Davis continued with his home duties per usual and was still very active. However, due to the swelling's noticeable increase in size, Davis has become very worried about the health complications his hernia can cause if it is not treated promptly. If left untreated, not only will the growth continue to grow, but he will also be at risk of strangulation and intestinal obstruction. Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner's care center on August 13th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $170 to fund Davis's surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. Davis says, “I want and hope to live a normal life again through surgery and be able to take my studies to a higher level. I want to become a strong and educated man in future who is able to help others.”
