about Sharon's recovery.

December 1, 2019

Sharon is a 22 year old from Singore Village in Kenya. She is social, friendly and loves music.

Sharon is the 2nd born together with her twin sister in a family of 5 children. She is currently enrolled at Eldoret Technical Training Institute pursuing a medical record course with her sister. Sharon’s mother is a farmer and her father a carpenter. Sharon had a normal birth but at a young age she couldn’t walk and her knee was stiff. She previously underwent surgery 16 years ago, but she has never improved and is still walking with a lot of difficulties.

Sharon currently limps as she walks and feels pain as she strains to move. Her self esteem has also been affected and sometimes while in college she gets imitated by her colleagues in school.

Sharon is scheduled to undergo surgery on her right knee. This treatment will be of great help to her as she will be able to walk without any difficulty. Her self esteem will improve and she will continue with her dream career of becoming a record officer in a hospital.

Sharon and her family are not able to raise the estimated bill and thus requested for support saying, “my desire is to walk well like my sister without straining. Any kind of support purposed to make/ improve my walking is highly appreciated.”
