Dina is a 69-year-old mother of seven from Kenya. She plants maize and beans on her farm left by her late husband. She lost her husband in the year 2014 after suffering from stomach cancer. Despite all the challenges she faced, Dina has been a strong woman for her children. She has worked hard to educate her children and provide basic needs for them through farming. The family stays together in a grass-roofed house.

Dina came to our hospital recently with a severe fracture on her right femur. X-ray imaging confirmed a closed femur fracture. Dina, who is unable to walk and has severe pain, was admitted for skin traction and requires an ORIF surgery with a plate to heal her broken femur.

Dina is unable to attend to her daily duties because of her broken leg. She is worried about being dependent on her children who also need her. She is requesting anybody reading her story to support her raise funds for her surgery of $968.00.

On January 22nd, Dina will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. The surgery will allow Dina walk with ease and reduce chances of further complications. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.

Dina says, “I want to get back on my feet and resume my normal duties farming so that I can be able to raise school fees for my son who is in college.”

Sreyna

Sreyna is a 9-year-old girl who is living with her grandmother. Sreyna's mother works in a garment factory in another province, and sends money to Sreyna's grandmother for her care. Sreyna enjoys school, and is hoping to become an accountant. She also likes playing with her friends, reading, painting, and watching cartoons, and her favorite meal is a traditional Khmer noodle dish that her grandmother makes for her. In June 2021, Sreyna was hit by a car while riding her bike home from school, and her left leg was severely injured. Her family took her to a local hospital, where she received medical care and a skin graft. A year later, as a result of her injury and treatment, Sreyna's left leg is shorter than her right leg, she has limited range of motion of her ankle, and she has a large scar. She has difficulty walking, and she can't keep up with her friends when running and playing. Her grandmother shared that she is worried it is also impacting her confidence. A neighbor suggested our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre, for treatment so Sreyna and her grandmother traveled there hoping for care. Now surgeons plan to do a series of procedures on Sreyna's leg, which should enable her to walk and run and to keep up with her friends when they play. They are raising $487 to fund Sreyna's medical care, which is scheduled for May 12th at Kien Khleang National Rehabilitation Centre. Sreyna's grandmother said: "I hope Sreyna's leg will be fixed so she can walk without a limp and be active like other children."
