Simeon is a farmer from Kenya. He is a father of seven.

About two week ago, Simeon was walking on a muddy path when he fell on a hard surface and sustained a fracture of his left hip joint. He has been in a lot of pain and has been using crutches to walk.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On March 14, Simeon will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him walk easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $966 to fund this procedure.

Simeon says, “My hope in life is to see that my children get a good education and to grow in Christ so that they will have a better future.”
