Asbel underwent fracture repair surgery so he can continue working.

Twenty-one-year-old Asbel had an open fracture and underwent a successful repair surgery! He recovered well and was discharged home after a few days. Asbel is so relieved that he will now be able to walk when he recovers fully. He is no longer at of risk of toe amputation and he is feeling very grateful.

Asbel says, “I am very happy and I am not in pain anymore. Thank you Watsi for your kindness. You have taken away my worries.”

Asbel is a young farmer and the firstborn in a family of six. Asbel lives with his mother and siblings since their father passed away. The 28-year-old does farming to earn a living and sometimes is able to do other casual work in people’s farms. His siblings are young and his mother has no income-generating activity to support the family. He was forced to drop out of high school due to lack of funds to support his education.

On arrival at the hospital, Asbel was checked by the doctors who also did an x-ray. This confirmed that he had sustained a metatarsal fracture with a dislocation on his right lower limb. Due to his condition, Asbel was taken to the operating theater for an urgent washout procedure to clean out his wound and then admitted to the hospital for pain management. He was also told that he would need surgery to fix the fractured bones. The condition has caused Asbel pain, swelling, and an open wound after a prick by a sharp object on his right foot while working on the farm.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On November 24th, Asbel will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and external fixation. He will be able to go back to farming and continue supporting his family. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $853 to fund this procedure.

Asbel says, “My hope is to get treated so that I can resume all my daily duties and provide for my family and my siblings.”
