Joseph is a 20-year-old man from rural Kenya. He graduated secondary school in 2016 and is currently waiting to join the university.
Early in February, Joseph was involved in a motorcycle accident, during which he sustained a hip fracture. If left untreated, he will be at risk of permanent disability and arthritic complications.
“I passed my high school exams and am supposed to join university in September,” Joseph says. “I pray that I get well and am able to earn some school fees for myself.”
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,042 to fund a fracture repair procedure for Joseph. He is scheduled to undergo surgery on March 1 at our medical partner’s care center, AIC Kijabe Hospital. After treatment, Joseph is expected to make a full recovery and be able to join the university.
