Racheal underwent fracture repair procedure.

Racheal’s treatment was successful. She was able to walk on crutches for short distances before discharge albeit with a little resistance and a lot of encouragement from our medical partner’s physiotherapist.

Our partner shared that Racheal repeated the same bible verse from Proverbs 19:17 several times when she was visited during her hospital stay. “Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done.” Racheal is hopeful that the coming year will be full of blessing for her and her family.”

Rachael is a 62 year old farmer from Kiambu County in Kenya. She had 10 children, 8 of whom are alive today. Most of her children are not employed and depend on odd jobs to support their families.

Rachael was hit by a motorcycle on Sunday, 15th December while walking in her local shopping centre Raini. She has trouble recalling what happened and seems a bit distant and distraught. She is not able to walk and is in chronic pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On December 19th, Racheal will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help her heal and walk again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.

“I am hopeful that my mother will recover and be able to walk without much difficulty after surgery,” shared one of her sons.
