Robert to undergo surgery so he can walk again.

Robert’s final fracture repair surgery was a success! He will visit the hospital again in a few weeks for review as part of the healing process. Months after his road traffic accident in June, Robert has no more anticipated procedures and he’s returned home feeling relieved and hopeful.

Robert shared, β€œIt has been a journey and I am almost completing it. I need to now focus on healing so that I may be able to use my legs again and take care of my family.”

Robert is a 37-year-old matatu taxi driver with two children. Recently, Robert was involved in a traffic accident where he sustained multiple fractures in his legs. He has difficulty walking and can no longer work as a driver.

Fortunately, with the support of Watsi donors he was able to have his first surgery and now surgeons at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), are able to help with his final repair. On August 5th, Robert will undergo a second fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will allow Robert to walk with more ease. AMH is requesting $1,500 to fund this procedure.

β€œI am hopeful I will be able to walk again. I am halfway there. I know with this surgery, I will be able to use my legs and get back to working again,” shared Robert.
