Chris is a young boy from Kenya who fractured his right hand a few weeks ago while playing with friends. The playful boy was rushed to the nearest clinic and had plaster applied. A week later, he had no improvement. His mother was advised to visit Kijabe hospital. Upon X-ray imaging, Chris was diagnosed with supracondylar fracture and had ORIF recommended. Chris is not able to move his hand and without urgent surgery, he risks having complications on the fracture and is in constant pain.

Chris is the only child in his family. He comes from a humble background. His mother takes up a sales job on a casual basis while his father is a construction site worker. Their income is too little to meet the cost of surgery. The family appeals for financial assistance.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. Chris will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. The surgery will reduce chances of further complications on the hand. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,451 to fund this procedure.

“I never thought this would happen. Please help my son get treated,” says his mother.
