Robert did not undergo a fracture repair.

Robert was in the hospital since 5th of November and was had an External Fixation on 7th November due to his open fracture in his tibia/fibula. He was due for his second ORIF on 27th November to be supported by Watsi donors. Unfortunately by his wound was not yet healed for surgery, and considering the nature of the condition, the surgeon advised that he should be referred to an orthopedic specialist at a different hospital. Our medical partner has informed us that given his referral, his treatment costs are no longer required.

Robert is casual worker from Kenya. He is married and they have two children. Robert is the bread-winner and works as a casual laborer at a quarry. His wife does not work and takes care of their small farm.

Robert has been busy and actively working to support his family, until the 5th of November when a stone at the quarry accidentally fell on his leg. He sustained open comminuted fracture (a fracture where there are more than two bone fragments) of the right tibia/fibula. It is difficult for him to walk and he is in chronic pain

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On November 27th, Robert will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him heal well and be able to work again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.

“I am very desperate; my family is needy and I have to get my health back to continue earning for my family survival. Please help me and God will bless you,” said Robert.
