Born and bred in the valleys of Resim village (Kenya), Benard is one of the five children of Mr. Paul, a security guard at a private homestead within their home area. Benard schooled at Kaptura primary school a few meters away from home. He dropped out of school in grade seven due to insufficient funds at home. Benard is employed by a neighbor to operate his motorcycle as a taxi.

Benard was well until Friday 20th of September evening when he was involved in a road traffic accident while he was heading home from work. He sustained severe injury to his right leg. Benard was brought to our hospital and after doctors’ assessment and X-ray done, he was diagnosed with proximal tibia fracture. he can not stand nor walk without support and is in chronic pain

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 26th, Benard will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. Bernard will be able to walk once he has healed and he will be able to resume working. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.

Benard says, “I want to be able to walk again. I can’t withstand the pain in my leg.”
