Paul underwent surgery so he can walk and work again.

Paul is a really happy man after undergoing a successful surgery to heal his patella. As he recovers, Paul has been able to use crutches, and flex and extend his knee without much difficulty. He has been very grateful. The surgery will help him walk and work again. He will be able to carry out his day-to-day duties and earn a living.

Paul says, “I had nobody to look up to, thank you for extending your help to me. May God bless you.”

Paul is 51-year-old, outgoing farmer from a small village in the highlands of Kenya. Paul survives on daily work in his neighbors’ farms to gather for the needs of his family. He is married with two children, and together they live in a semi-permanent house. His family relies on him for their daily needs as Paul is the only family bread winner.

Paul arrived to the hospital with a fracture on his left knee after a fall at his home. He now has a lot of pain, swelling, and inability to flex his left knee.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On February 22nd, Paul will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. Once he heals, he’ll be able to walk well with no difficulties and pain. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $1,145 to fund his procedure.

Paul says, “I am really uncomfortable when my children need me and I cannot be there for them. Please help me so that I can heal and be able to raise them well.”
