Kaarie is a 14-year-old girl from Kenya. She is the second born in a family of seven children. Her father is a farmer, while her mother looks after the children.

Two years ago, she fell and injured her right hip. This has caused pain and affected her ability to walk. Unfortunately, she was forced to stop attending school.

Now, Kaarie is scheduled to undergo an osteotomy to heal her hip and help her walk. Surgery is scheduled for June 5 and will cost $1,231.

She says, “I will be grateful if this condition is corrected and I resume my studies.”

Esther

Meet Esther, a 13-year-old girl, from a village in Kenya who is in need of treatment for genu varus, a knee condition that impacts her ability to walk. Her aunt told us that Esther likes reading and is very active at home. She helps her mother in doing household chores. Esther came to the hospital with her aunt, her grandmother, and a friend from the village. They told us that her mother could not make it to the hospital since she has a young child and she also has a disability on her feet. Esther is the oldest in a family of two children, with her family hailing from a village in Machakos County. Her mother is a housewife while her father is a farmer. They shared that their family lives in a two-roomed mud-house. Esther was born a healthy child, however at the age of one years old, her family noticed un unusual bowing of her legs. She could also feel pain. Since then her condition has continued to worsen. Currently, Esther is a sixth grade student. She often feels pain while walking, she cannot walk far or carry heavy loads. Her self esteem has also been very low which has affected her studies as well. Surgery will be of great impact to her because she will be able to walk, continue with her education, help her mother, and most of it all her self esteem will improve meaning she will be able to interact with other children comfortably. “If there is any kind of help to help our girl, we will gladly appreciate it,” Esther’s aunt told us.
