Enock did not need to undergo fracture surgery and is starting to heal.

Our medical partner shared that Enock’s originally scheduled fracture surgery had to be rescheduled twice due to other emergencies. After the delays, his doctors did a follow-up X-ray which indicated that his bone was starting to heal and have better alignment. The medical team wants to monitor his recovery instead of moving forward with surgery at this time. They have asked that Watsi support another patient in need right now. We are so glad Enock is doing well!

Enock is a talkative 16-year-old student and the fourth child in a family of five. He just completed his primary school education and he is currently waiting to begin his secondary studies in July. His parents are farmers in his village where they plant maize and beans in their small farm for their family to eat. His elder siblings did not finish school due to insufficient finances at home to proceed with their education. His father has epilepsy and this has affected the family’s daily activities and general production of resources for the family. They don’t have a permanent house but live in a mud house with grass as its roof.

Two days ago, Enock went to get medical assistance after falling from a tree while he was cutting down tree branches. He had pain in his left hand and doctors observed that he had a left distal humerus comminuted fracture. Because he had so much pain, Enock was admitted to receive pain medications.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help him to fully heal. On May 25th, Enock will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. Enock will be free from the pain, he will be able to use his hand again, and resume school and helping out at home. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,016 to fund this procedure.

Enock says, “My hope is to get treated, and be well again.”
