Phelon is a young student from Kenya who wants to be a doctor when she grows up. She is the last born child in a family of three. Her mother, the only breadwinner in their family operates a printing kiosk in the capital, making about $5 daily. She cares for her children and her own siblings.
In the second week of January, Phelon fell while playing with other children. Her right hand dislocated and by evening, it was swollen. She is not able to use her hand freely and she is in pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On February 3rd, Phelon will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help her use her hand again and continue with her studies. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $640 to fund this procedure.
Phelon’s mother says, “My prayer, like any other mother, is to see my daughter heal and lead a normal life.”
