about Kennedy's recovery.

February 28, 2021

Kennedy is a 38-year-old motorbike taxi operator. He lives in a two-room rental house, and is paid on commission for his job, so when he can’t work it is harder for him to make ends meet.

Last December, Kennedy was involved in an accident where he sustained multiple fractures. He is still in pain and cannot use his left hand.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On March 5th, Kennedy will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him be able to use his left hand normally again, and resume operating his motorbike. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to fund this procedure.

Kennedy says, “I use my legs a lot in my line of work, as well as my hands. I depend on this surgery to get better and survive.”
