June 21, 2018

Jane is a woman from Kenya. She has six siblings and two children. She used to work as a cleaner in a hotel.

Jane has been experiencing severe discomfort in her back, leading to weakness and loss of function in her lower limbs. She took painkillers and antibiotics, but the problem continued. From several doctors, she received different diagnoses, such as a kidney infection and pneumonia, but the medications they prescribed never worked.

Finally, Jane visited our medical partner’s care center, where she underwent an MRI. This scan revealed that she has a lower spine deformity. She needs to undergo a spine fusion surgery to treat the condition. Fortunately, surgery is scheduled for June 21. Now, she just needs help raising $1,500 to fund the procedure.

“I am appealing for support, the pain I have is intolerable, I cannot be able to pay the bill and am afraid I might not walk again. Please help me,” Jane says.
