David did not yet undergo arm fracture repair.

Our medical partner just shared with us that unfortunately David did not return for his planned treatment. They are making many efforts to reach him, but have not yet been able to so we have decided to close this case so that other patients can be helped.

David is a farmer from Kenya who is married and a father of two children aged 4 and 2. The young couple depends on casual jobs to cater for their young family. Since he was involved in a road accident, David has not been able to work. His wife has been doing all kinds of work to make sure that the family get the basic needs needed. He feels sorry for his dear wife because she strains a lot and wishes that he could help but he can’t because of his weak hand.

David underwent emergency surgery in July, involving a scalp repair and washout for a grade 2 open humerus fracture and to fix his left humerus and left bimalleolar fractures. However, it was noted that the repair of his left humerus was unacceptable. He therefore underwent revision ORIF of his humerus in August. Six months later, David has come for review, he is doing better and has returned to near normal life activity. Unfortunately, he still has left elbow stiffness, which has prevented him fully resuming his normal life and requires further treatment.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On January 24th, David will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. He will be able to move his hand freely, function better and help his wife care for their family. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $771 to fund this procedure.

David says, “I am doing well, I can hold to something but I can’t carry or lift heavy items because of my weak hand. I am looking forward to regain my energy and help my wife to provide for our family.”
