Morris received a bone transport for his right leg.

“I lack the words to express my gratitude,” Morris says. “I will always remember the kindness that you have shown me.”

Meet Morris, a 27-year-old man from Kenya and the eldest of three children. He is a trained tailor but has had a difficult time working since his accident earlier this year.

While riding on a motorbike, Morris was hit from behind by a car that lost control. He has been diagnosed with a right tibia fracture and ostreomyelitis (infection in the bone) and can no longer walk without support. “Morris has had more than four operations since the accident,” explains our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation. “His parents, who are farmers, ended up selling their land and cattle when Morris’ medical bills became too much for the family.”

For $1,500, we can fund the bone transport necessary to repair Morris’ damaged tissue and get him back on his feet again. Without treatment, he might end up needing an amputation due to severe infection.

“I have watched as my parents sold everything they had so that I can walk again. I want to be able to walk and work again so that I can help my family,” Morris tells us. Together, we can make this dream a reality.
