Josphat is a farmer from Kenya. He is a married father of four children. Josphat farms a small piece of land, and his wife sells vegetables at their local market. His family lives in a rental house after being displaced from their home in 2008 during Kenya’s post-election violence.
In 2008, Josphat broke his right femur and spent a whole year in the hospital. Fortunately, he was treated and continued farming. However, two days ago, he slid and fractured his right femur again. Josphat is experiencing difficulty walking and working.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On November 16, Josphat will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. He will able to walk again and provide for his family. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,451 to fund this procedure.
Josphat says, “I wish to be treated and continue providing for my family. They still need my presence and contribution.”
