Susan underwent a fracture repair surgery so her leg can heal.

Susan underwent repair surgery on her fractured femur and her surgery was a success! She recovered well and was able to use crutches when she went home. Once she was no longer in pain, she gave a huge smile and lit up the room. Once her leg fully heals, Susan will be able to walk normally and continue with her life.

Susan’s mother shared, “we can only say thank you for this sponsorship. We are glad the surgery went on well and our girl is now smiling again. We hope she will recover fully soon and go back to school. God bless you all.”

Susan is a seven-year-old girl in the first grade and the second child in her family. Unfortunately, Susan was involved in a grisly road traffic accident when a vehicle lost control on March 8th, 2021. Five children and the teachers were hit, and one child unfortunately passed away. Susan survived despite sustaining fractures on her right hand and leg. She was brought to our medical partner’s care center, Nazareth Hospital, and had a fracture repair surgery on her hand and leg.

One week ago the plates were removed. Susan’s hand has healed well but she has started having severe pain on her leg. When Susan’s parents brought her back to the hospital, a X-Ray showed the fracture has reoccurred, and the surgeon recommended a repeat surgery. Without treatment, Susan will continue experiencing the pain, she may never be able to use her leg again, or her leg may eventually heal with a deformity.

Fortunately, the surgeons at Nazareth can help. On July 1st, Susan is scheduled to undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. Afterward, Susan will freed from pain and will be able to use her leg to walk to school and play again.

Susan’s father works temporarily as a welder and her mother is a housewife. Their income is limited and their health insurance can no longer cover for another surgery after supporting the previous one. Therefore, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMH), is requesting $1,049 to fund this procedure for Susan.

“We thank God that our child is alive as one child died during the accident. We are hoping her surgery can be successful so that we can see her happy again and not in pain. We plead for her surgery sponsorship, ” Susan’s father wishes for her daughter’s full recovery.
