Salome to fix a bone fracture.

Salome had a successful surgery, but since she had bled a lot after the accident, she was transfused blood before and after surgery. She was then discharged home with haematinics (iron supplements). This surgery will enable Salome to walk again and continue to study. The mother was very happy and appreciated the support.

Salome’s mother could not hide her gratitude, and with a smile, she expressed how happy she was as she said, “I don’t know what I would have done without your support. May God bless you. At least my daughter is relieved from the severe pain and soon she will go back to school.”

Salome is a child from Kenya. Salome is a shy girl aged six years from Uplands, Limuru Kiambu County. She likes to play a lot with friends and is also very responsible. She is the last born in a family of six children and in pre-primary class 2. Their mother separated with the father leaving the six of them under her care. Life has not been easy because this mother is just a casual laborer at neighbor’s farms.

On Sunday 15th September Salome was sent to the shop by her mother, which was a normal thing for her. Unfortunately as she went to the shop she was hit by motor cycle and sustained open fracture tibia and femur of the left leg. It is difficult for her to walk, and she is in chronic pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 23rd, Salome will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help her walk easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.

“I don’t have anyone to turn to and yet I feel for my daughter. I hope to get help so that she can be able to walk again and continue with her school. This will also relieve her from the severe pain she is experiencing” said Salome’s mother.
