Peter received a life-changing fracture repair.

Peter sustained a femur shaft fracture and hip dislocation. The orthopedic team performed a successful repair and upon healing Peter will be able to use his leg independently again. He currently is moving well on level ground with use of auxiliary crutches with supervision and will slowly increase his mobility over time. Peter’s recovery process will be supported with return visits to his doctor for reviews and follow-up to ensure a full recovery.

Peter shared, “I hope to go back to school again now that I have received the care and treatment that I needed to be able to walk.”

Peter is a third grade student from Kenya. Peter is very active and playful like many kids his age. He is the seventh son in a family of eight children. Peter’s father repairs household items including basins and jerricans, and his mother is a casual laborer who washes clothes for a living. Their family currently lives together in a two-room mud house.

About 10 weeks ago, Peter fell from a tall tree and he sustained a femur shaft fracture and hip dislocation. He currently walks and gets around using crutches, and there is the risk that he may not able to walk on his own again unless he receives surgical intervention.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On March 17th, Peter 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, is requesting $1,500 to fund his surgery.

Peter’s father shared, “[Peter] has been unable to go to school since the accident. He can’t walk without the help of crutches and if he doesn’t go for surgery he might be unable to walk normally.”
