Titus underwent a fracture repair procedure on his right leg.

Titus underwent successful surgery after sustaining a severe injury to his right knee. He recovered well and was happy to return home with his family. Titus is currently walking on crutches and looks forward to his full recovery to be able to work and help support his father.

After expressing his excitement to be back on his feet, Titus shared, “I thank Watsi for being there for us, my family could not afford these huge bills. You have given me a smile again.”

Titus is a 22-year-old motorcyclist and is the sixth born in a family of nine: six boys and three girls. His father earns wages from farming and working in other people’s farms, while his mother takes care of their house and family. They live in a two-roomed iron-built house in their village.

Two months ago, Titus was involved in a road accident. He was riding a motorcycle that lost brake power and fell into a ditch. Titus sustained lacerations on his knee and fractured his right patella, and was rushed to a nearby district hospital where he was sutured and discharged home. Three weeks later, when he tried to stretch his leg, his wound opened and an X-Ray imaging of his leg revealed an open patella fracture. The doctor has recommended open reduction and internal fixation surgery and skin grafting to avoid further complications and further wound infection. Currently, Titus is in pain and has to use a walking frame to get around. His parents have desperately searched for a solution, but their socioeconomic status with the family of many children in school with fees has limited the options of helping Titus.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On January 13th, Titus will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will relieve him of his pain and he’ll be able to use his leg once he recovers. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,145 to fund this procedure.

Titus shared, “My biggest hope is to get an opportunity to be treated so that I can go home to better my life.”
