Naomi is a young student from Kenya. She is the sixth born child in a family of eight children. Her mother sells vegetables in a small grocery shop, while her father is a construction worker.
Naomi injured her left femur in early April 2018. She had a cast applied, recuperated well, and was ready to resume school. Unfortunately, she fell on the school stairs and broke her femur in the same location around mid-June. It is difficult for her to walk, and she has not been able to attend school.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On July 3, Naomi 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 $1,451 to fund this procedure.
Naomi says, “My prayer is to get well and resume my studies. I want to excel and join a national high school.”
