Alex did not yet undergo his knee surgery as he first needs other treatment.

Alex was admitted to the hospital for treatment for his knee condition known as bilateral genu valgum. When the surgeons began to review his health closer, they determined he may have renal disease and was referred to a nephrologist for important treatment. His surgery for his knees has been postponed so that the medical team can ensure he is healthy enough to undergo treatment. We hope to be able to support his case soon, thank you for your understanding and support.

Alex is a young boy from Kenya. He is the second born of two children to a single mother. Alex’s family comes from a humble and hard working background. Currently, they depend on the financial support of Alex’s grandmother, who is a farmer.

For the last two years, Alex has had bilateral genu valgus, or knock-knees. This causes his knees to touch as he walks around, and hinders his ability to walk. Alex is no longer able to walk upright without any support. He was referred to our Medical Partner Care Center AIC Cure International Hospital by a nun who takes care of needy families in his neighborhood.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Alex receive treatment. Alex is scheduled to undergo a corrective surgery for his condition on February 22nd at our medical partner’s care center. Once recovered, he will hopefully be able to walk without any difficulty. This procedure will cost $1,224, and will cover the cost of supplies and care. Alex’s family is unable to raise funds for his surgery and appeals for financial support.

Sr Mary, the nun who referred Alex, shared, “We will appreciate any kind of support for Alex to walk and continue with a normal life like other children.”
