James is a young man from Kenya. He is single and works as a bus conductor on the Kiambu-Nairobi route. He is on a daily contract and earns an average $3 depending on the day. For the last three months, he has been jobless following the government COVID-19 restrictions that are in place. James shared that his mother is elderly and depends on farming for upkeep. His father passed on years ago.
On the 22nd of July, James accidentally hit a brick wall when the vehicle lost control while he was driving the bus to work. James was injured in the accident and fractured his hip. He is now in chronic pain and cannot walk.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On July 29th, James will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him walk easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,094 to fund this procedure.
James says, “I will be happy to get help so that I can get back to work and help my elderly mother who depends on me.”
