Wilson is a laborer from Kenya. He is the third born in a family of three.

About three weeks ago, Wilson fell from a house and hit his left leg, causing a small cut. He was taken to a dispensary, where the cut was sutured. Later, he developed severe pain and was diagnosed with a femur fracture. He is not able to walk on his own, and he is in chronic pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 11, Wilson will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will helo him walk easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.

“I have had so much pain and suffering. I hope Watsi will accept to assist me so that I can be well,” says Wilson.
