Paul underwent a fracture repair procedure but was able to obtain sufficient funding support.

We just heard good news from our Medical Partner that Paul underwent surgery in February and to treat his injuries from his accident. During the surgery, the team treated his mandible fracture, but also found that his maxillary fractures were stable and had started healing. They felt he could benefit more without the other facial surgeries and opted to leave them to heal. While his surgical team had anticipated multiple surgeries would be needed on his face, with a high cost for treatment, they were able to minimize the intervention and Watsi donor support is no longer required. Paul said, “I feel so much relieved, the pain was unbearable but am on track toward healing. God bless you abundantly.”

Our medical partner has asked that we support another patient in need of care at this time.

Paul is a 52-year-old hardworking man from Kenya. He mainly works in building sites in his home village Magumu, earning a daily wage of $4 when he is able to find work. Paul’s income is inconsistent because it depends on the availability of work. His wife is also a laborer who washes clothes to earn a bit more to and support the family. Paul and his wife have six children and live together in a three-room house in their ancestral home. Their kids are aged between 12 and 26 years old.

On January 9th, Paul was hit by a motorbike along the Magumu highway. He sustained many injuries, including on his maxillomandibular. Paul is not able to eat and is in a lot of pain. He needs multiple surgeries to repair his fractures, but he cannot afford the cost of his care. Paul’s and his wife’s earnings are limited, and he already sold his cattle to raise some funds for his surgeries, but it is not nearly enough. Paul is appealing for financial support.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On January 28th, Paul will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him heal and eat comfortably again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to fund this procedure.

Paul shared, “I am not able to eat well and I am always in pain. I need help with the surgery so as to be able to get well and fend for my family, who depend on me.”
