James is a man from Kenya. He is married and has three children.

In February 2015, James was in a road accident and sustained a fractured femur of his right leg. He underwent surgery and had hardware applied to correct the fracture. Last month, he underwent an x-ray that showed that the plate had broken. He needs to undergo another repair surgery. Right now, it is difficult for him to walk, and he is in chronic pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On July 3, James will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him walk easily again and he will be able to go back to work and provide for his family. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.

“I hope Watsi will help me so that soon I can go back to work and support my family,” said James.

Nuriya

Nuriya is a cute child from Ethiopia. Nuriya's mother was in Saudi Arabia for four years doing domestic work and her employers did not pay her during this time. She asked for her salary several times but they refused to pay her. Finally she decided to go home and they send her home without her payment. Nuriya’s father was also immigrant in Saudi Arabia for eight years. He went to Saudi Arabia illegally by sea and was caught and deported back to Ethiopia several times but he kept using his savings to go back. Once Nuriya’s parents were back in Ethiopia, they decided to stay and start a family. Their families have decided to help them and accommodate them until they find work. Nuriya’s father has not found work and now he plans to buy oxen and start farming. Nuriya was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. He needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction. Nuriya is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition on October 07. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Nuriya's procedure and care. After his recovery, Nuriya will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future. Nuriya’s mother said “We can’t afford the medical bill. We are here through the support of another organization. We are living under the support of our relatives. Nuriya’s colostomy operation was done by the government. I believe the child will get better soon."
