Benjamin is a farmer from Kenya. He is a hardworking father of seven.

Eight days ago, Benjamin went to visit his father with his younger brother, and they rode a motorbike. On their return journey, they lost control of the bike and drove into a ditch. Benjamin lost consciousness and found himself lying in a hospital bed, only to be told that he had fractured his left leg. He is currently unable to walk

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On February 23, Benjamin will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This surgery will restore full function of his left leg. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.

“I pray to God to give me good health so that continue working hard,” says Benjamin.
