about Duncan's recovery.

April 28, 2020

Duncan is a 30-year-old young man. He is the 3rd and last born in his family. Duncan completed his studies last year and hopes to gain meaningful employment with the Kenyan government. While on his daily routine and walking through town dropping his CV, he encountered an accident on the road, and the vehicle that hit him disappeared. He was taken to Kenyatta National Hospital (the main referral hospital in Kenya) where he underwent multiple surgeries. Due to financial constraints, he was discharged without further interventions. Duncan then was able to connect with Watsi’s medical partner and received fracture treatment with Watsi donor support earlier this year.

Duncan underwent his surgery and it was successful. The treatment has helped him improve his ability to walk and be out of a wheelchair. During his follow-up appointment, the doctors have determined that unfortunately he will need to undergo another surgery to correct his proximal ulna fracture. This is because Duncan is still experiencing pain and discomfort. We are hopeful that this fracture repair surgery will finally deliver Duncan from the pain and suffering he is currently undergoing and are requesting $1,165 to cover the treatment costs.

“I’m in a lot of pain and discomfort in my right hand and any kind of support accorded to me will be highly appreciated,” Duncan expressed.
