Leah underwent a leg fracture repair.

It was such great relief for Leah to see herself walking again, even with the help of crutches. She and her family were very happy for the support because they are also trying to pay for her son’s open reduction and internal fixation surgery, a procedure that heals severely broken bones. Soon, Leah will be able to resume her street vendor job to support her family.

With a bold smile, Leah shared,” I have no words to say thank you but I only pray that God who sees our heart can bless you all. At least now I have hope of walking soon without crutches and can start working again. I don’t know what my poor family would have done looking for money for me and my son. Thank you”

Leah is a street vendor from Kenya. She is a mother of six grown-up children, but one has passed away and left Leah with 3 grandchildren to care for. Leah separated from her husband when her children were young and she worked hard to raise them well despite limited income. Leah earns a living by selling clothes around her neighborhood.

On Wednesday May 13th, 2020 Leah was on a motorbike going to take clothes to a customer when she had an accident and sustained a closed fracture tibia on her right leg. It is difficult for her to walk, and she is now in pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On May 19th, Leah will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help her walk easily again Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,099 to fund this procedure.

“Only God can know what I am going through and the pain I am in. I have no one to turn to for help yet there are children depending on me. I plead for help so that this leg can get well and I can resume my job to support my family especially my grandchildren,” said Leah.
