Edwin successfully was treated for his fractured leg.

After falling over a fence and fracturing his leg this past year, Edwin received successful surgery to realign his bone. Within a few days, Edwin’s swelling has already been reduced and in a month’s time his fracture will have healed well. In order to ensure that Edwin regains total movement of his leg, he will also attend physiotherapy. He’s on track for a full recovery.

“Thank you for the assistance,” says Edwin. “I hope to be well and continue providing for my young family.”

Meet Edwin, a young father of one from Kenya. Currently, Edwin is struggling to walk due to a fracture in his leg.

Edwin fell over a fence in July 2016. He was rushed to our facility where he had an operation on his right leg. His medical cost was met by his parents. However, on further review, an open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) surgery was recommended to complete treatment. Edwin and his family are unable to meet this much more expensive cost - $1,410.

Edwin is a mason working at construction sites, though not permanently employed. His wife is a tailor who until August had been employed at a local tailoring shop. However, she stopped working to care for Edwin. Edwin stays in a single house in his parent’s compound. His parents are teachers but face the burden of providing for their three children, one who is in high school and the other who is also married but not employed.

Let’s help fund this important treatment for Edwin. “I want to get well to continue providing for my young family,” he shared.
