Victor underwent a fracture repair procedure.

After sustaining severe fracture on his right upper limb, Victor finally underwent a successful ORIF (fracture repair) surgery. He had a calm stay at the hospital and fast recovery post-surgery. Victor was discharged home a few days later and will be coming for surgical follow-up and physiotherapy to bring movement back to his hand.

Augustine, Victor’s father shared, “I am excited that I am going home with my son after receiving treatment. Thank you Watsi for your kindness for giving me hope again.”

Victor is a five-year-old boy from Kenya. He is the firstborn child in a family of three aged between 5 months and 1 year. He is a kindergartener and a happy boy.

On November 24th, Victor was playing with his friends when he accidentally fell down and sustained an injury on his right hand. His father found him on the road crying, and brought him to the hospital. Doctors conducted an x-ray, which revealed a fracture on his right supracondylar. Because he was in pain, and could not move nor lift his hand, Victor was admitted to the pediatrics ward awaiting surgery.

Unfortunately, the procedure Victor needs is costly for his family, who lacks a stable income. His father is a casual labourer who looks after people’s cattle, and his mother is a housewife. Victor’s family has been able to raise some money, but needs additional support to raise the amount needed for his treatment.

On November 27th, Victor will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. Now, Victor’s family needs $801 to fund the cost of his care.

Victor’s father shared, “I want to see him happy, not in pain, be healthy and have a good life.”
