Titus underwent fracture surgery.

Twelve-year-old Titus underwent a successful Open Reduction and K-Wiring surgery to help heal his hand. Titus recovered well after his surgery and he was able to go home on the same day of the surgery. Titus is working with the medical team on physiotherapy exercises and, soon, he will be able to move his fingers.

Titus’s aunt says, “I am very happy with the results, he doesn’t have pain anymore. Thank you Watsi for your kindness. You have taken away the worries I had before.”

Titus is a shy 12-year-old boy and the oldest of three siblings. His mother is a single mother who works in the laundry business. His mother’s work has unfortunately been affected by the pandemic, so recently Titus has been staying with his aunt as she is able to provide the family with some extra support.

On Wednesday, April 14th, Titus sustained a severe injury to his left fingers after a machete fell while he was fetching firewood from the forest with his friends. His aunt brought him to the hospital where he received an X-ray, which revealed a fracture. A cast was placed to stabilize the fracture and realign the normal position of the bone as he waits for surgery.

Titus requires help so that he can undergo surgery. His family is asking anyone reading his son’s story to support her raise the amount needed for his treatment. Titus’s aunt said, “Titus is in a lot of pain, I hope he gets treated and feels better and is well again.”
