John is a farmer from Kenya. In July 2018, he sustained a closed fracture of his right humerus. He was taken to the hospital and bandaged. He was advised to undergo surgery, but his family could not afford treatment.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On December 13, John will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help the fracture heal, and John will be able to use his right hand again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.

His brother says, ”We are desperate; even bus fare to come to the hospital was paid by our neighbors. I pray that Watsi may help us so that my brother can at least be able to help himself to do basic things.”
