Eunice is a 66-year-old woman from Kenya. In January, she fell from a moving motorcycle taxi and fractured her left shoulder. She received first aid from a nearby hospital.
Later, Eunice was referred to our medical partner’s hospital, AIC Kijabe Hospital, for further treatment. She underwent a closed reduction procedure on her dislocated shoulder. Unfortunately, the procedure was unsuccessful, and Eunice returned complaining of pain. X-ray results revealed that her shoulder was still dislocated.
Eunice has been unable to tend to her farm or complete any household chores. Without treatment, she risked continuing pain, a fracture malunion, or disability. Fortunately, on December 16, she underwent an open reduction internal fixation procedure to heal her fracture.
Eunice and her husband are farmers. Eunice takes care of four of her grandchildren. The family lives in a three-roomed house. They cannot afford healthcare, so our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $640 in funding.
“I want to get well and resume my duties of providing for my grandchildren,” says Eunice.
