Judy is a 30-year-old hair salonist from Kenya. She is the second wife of Stanley, a truck driver, and together they have two children. Stanley has seven children with his first wife, and Judy is the primary provider for her children.
Judy was on her way to visit with her parents for a few days when she fell into a roadside ditch. She was carried to the hospital where an X-ray confirmed her left fibula was fractured. Surgery to repair the bone is necessary. Judy’s children said they are concerned about their mother, and worried about who will bring food to the table while their mum is hospitalized.
Surgeons at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help. On August 17th, Judy will undergo an open reduction and internal fixation to repair the fracture. This treatment will help her get back on her feet and continue providing for her beloved children. AMH is requesting $1145 to fund this procedure.
Judy says, “I have never been hospitalized before. This is a hard experience for me. Look how my children are worried about me. I have hope that I will be out of the hospital soon.”
