Richard is an 18-year-old young man living in Uganda. He is a student who enjoys reading newspapers and listening to music. His best subjects are mathematics, agriculture, and economics. He also enjoys playing soccer and volleyball.
Last month, Richard sustained a fracture in his right fibula and tibia. He was in pain, and he was unable to move his leg. He received first aid from his school. Then, his friends carried him on a stretcher to our medical partner’s care center, Bwindi Community Hospital.
Richard’s physician recommended he undergo a non-surgical intervention to immobilize his right leg with casting or splinting. He began treatment on November 15. The total cost of the treatment includes medications, imaging, and three days of inpatient care. Richard has contributed four dollars toward his treatment, but he needs help to pay his remaining $133 medical bill.
During recovery, his right leg will will regain normal functionality, and his pain will cease. Richard looks forward to playing soccer and continuing with his studies.
“I pray for God’s protection to the people donating toward my treatment,” shares Richard.
