Tula is a farmer from Kenya. Tula is mother of six is a peasant farmer in the upcountry. She plants maize in her small farm left by his late husband to meet her daily needs. She lives in a two roomed house roofed with grass with some of his grandchildren. Apart from farming, Tula also likes spending her time doing church activities.
Tula was well until the 21st of November when she accidentally fell and injured her left hip. Tula was taken to a nearby health Centre where she was referred to our facility for Doctors assessment. On arrival an X-ray was done where she was diagnosed with left hip fracture. Tula is unable to stand or walk using her left leg. She also has deformity on her lower limb with pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On November 28th, Tula will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. She will no longer be in pain and will be able to walk. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.
Tula says, “I want to get back on my feet and resume my normal duties of farming and serving the church.
