about Philip's recovery.

July 6, 2020

Philip is a widower from Kenya. He is a quiet man who mostly keeps to himself and rarely shares his troubles and needs. His wife passed away in 2010 and he was left with four children to look after. But Philip now lives alone in a grass-thatched house and has four sheep. He does casual jobs and the little he earns enables him to buy food for himself.

Philip recently slipped and fell while he was tending to one of his sheep. He fractured his left femur and because he is in pain he cannot walk or work.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On July 7th, Philip will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him walk easily again and he will be able to work again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,016 to fund this procedure.

Philip shared, “I have been living a life that is not pleasing and my personal problems turned my children against me. This has been an eye-opener and I promise to make peace with my children after getting help with my broken leg.”
