Dennis underwent leg surgery.

As he hoped for, Dennis had a successful surgery. It was a great relief for him to know that he would soon be able to use his leg again and more importantly that he would be able to start earning for his new family. He is no longer at risk of his bones healing incorrectly or of contracting infection.

Dennis says, “This help and successful treatment has given me the hope of being a family man again. I know soon I will be on my feet working to support my new family. God bless you all.”

Dennis is a newly married, 20-year-old motorbike taxi driver. Dennis’ wife is currently unemployed, so Dennis’ earnings need to sustain his family.

On April 14th, Dennis was involved in a road accident while riding his motorbike. He was diagnosed with a closed fracture of his femur, put in traction, and sent home from the hospital to heal. A clinical officer at our medical partner’s hospital who knows Dennis reviewed his X-ray, and after consulting with another surgeon, it was determined that Dennis requires surgery in order for his fracture to heal properly. Currently, it is difficult for Dennis to walk, and he is still in constant pain. Dennis shared that this was not how he had hoped to begin married life.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner’s care center, Nazareth Hospital, can help. On June 2nd, Dennis will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This operation will enable Dennis’ fracture to heal without deformity or malunion. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $1,049 to fund this procedure.

“This is not the way I expected to start my family. I had planned to work hard, but this accident has interrupted that. It is one month now since the accident, and my leg is not well yet. I pray that I may get help, and have this surgery done so that my leg can be well soon to resume working for my new family,” Dennis said.
