Anna is a 49-year-old woman from Kenya. She is the mother of seven children, all of whom are in school. Her husband recently lost his hand in a road accident, which has taken him out of work. Recently, the family has been having difficulty earning enough money to meet their needs.

In July 2015, Anna slipped and fell. Since then, she has had a dislocated ankle. She has spent three years in pain and has undergone several unsuccessful attempts to get treatment. Finally, she was referred to our medical partner’s care center.

On April 9, Anna will undergo ankle fusion surgery. Now, her family needs help raising $793 to fund this procedure.

Anna says, “I want to be there for my family which desperately needs me. I hope that soon I will be able to ambulate with ease.”
