Peter is a 53-yer-old motorbike taxi operator from Kenya. He is married and a father of five children. Three of his children are in school and the other two completed school and are staying at home. Peter has been earning their living as the breadwinner through little proceeds from motorbike driving. His wife is not employed but works in their small piece of land.
On Saturday 30th May as he was dropping a client, they were hit by a vehicle that later sped off. Peter sustained an open fracture on his tibia and fibula of the right leg. He is in pain and cannot walk on his own.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On June 8th, Peter will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This treatment will help his leg to heal well and he will no longer be in pain. He will also be able to work again and care for his family. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,099 to fund this procedure.
“I am desperate and being the breadwinner I really need my leg back. I will be very grateful to be assisted to have this surgery so that soon I can be able to walk again and take care of my family,” said Peter.
