Mary underwent leg fracture repair surgery.

Mary had successful surgery and recovered well postoperatively. Soon she will be able to walk around on her own and be more independent again. By the time she went home from the hospital, she was very happy and even had a better, bigger smile. Our local Watsi rep shared that it seems her surgery outcome has transformed her desperation and brought new hope in life.

Mary’s son David could not hide his gratitude as he said, “Sometimes in life you come across very difficult moments that look like a high mountain to climb, your support means so much to me, my mum, and our family. I am happy that soon she will be able to move on her own without remaining a burden to others. God bless you all.”

Mary is a 77-year-old single woman from Kiambu County in Kenya.

On September 12th, she slipped and fell sustaining a closed tibia/fibula fracture of the right leg. Her son brought her to Nazareth Hospital and an x-ray done confirmed the fracture. The surgeon recommends an ORIF procedure, but their family could not raise the money required. If not treated Mary may never be able to walk again and will continue depending on others.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On October 12th, Mary will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. She will be able to again walk with ease and with minimal chances of complications. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,049 to fund this procedure.

With a heavy heart, Mary’s son said, “No one wanted to assist, but I kindly request for her support so that at least she can be able to walk around on her own.”
