Sammy is 40-years-old and works as a laborer at various sites around his home. A week ago, he opened the door to his home and was attacked by another man with a metal rod. His lower jaw is broken as a result.

“Sammy is not able to chew food,” African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF) writes. “He is also having difficulty speaking normally.”

“Sammy does not know the reason for the attack but he is grateful that he is still alive,” AMHF continues. “Sammy and his siblings are not able to raise the money needed for his treatment.” They’ve raised $360 but it’s not enough.

$660 more will ensure that AMHF can provide Sammy with the care to repair his lower jaw. Let’s help him out.
