On July 5, Tingo was heading to the market when she was hit by a speeding motorcycle and sustained a broken femur. She is not able to stand or walk using her right leg.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On July 11, Tingo will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help her walk and farm easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.

Tingo’s daughter says, “My mum has a lot of pain and discomfort, she cannot stand or even sit, I hope she gets treated and get well soon.”

Agnes

Agnes is a college student and is in her final year pursuing an architectural course. She lives with her parents and is the second born in a family of three children, all of whom are in school and rely on their parents for school fees and upkeep. Her father is a carpenter in their hometown, Kimende, and his income is inconsistent and not enough to cover the cost of the required surgery. Her mother is a small-scale farmer. Agnes was heading home in the evening last night when she remembers hearing screams and was hit by an unknown motorist from behind. She has no recollection of what happened after that. She lost consciousness and could not recognize her surroundings. She was brought to our medical partner's care center Kijabe Hospital and had an x-ray that revealed a left distal femur fracture. Doctors have recommended an urgent fracture repair surgery since the wound is open and she is in extreme pain. Today, she has regained her consciousness but cannot sit or walk due to the fracture. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner are here to help. On October 14th, Agnes will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help get rid of the pain and she will eventually be able to sit and walk easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $1,500 to fund this procedure. Agnes says, “I am in so much pain and I cannot walk. I don’t remember what happened, I just found myself bedridden with lights all over. I am unable to go back home because of the fracture.”
