Ann is a social, jovial, and bright young girl. Ann is in currently in grade six; she likes reading and aspires to become a surgeon in the future.

Ann was born with a congenital musculoskeletal malformation in her legs and started therapy when she was two years old, but eventually had to stop due to a lack of finances. As Ann has grown, her condition has continued to worsen and is now affecting her mobility, her studies, and her self-esteem. Ann was recently seen at the Cure Hospital Mobile Clinic in Embu, Kenya, and recommended for surgery.

Ann’s mother is a single mom who makes her living selling samosas in their hometown. Ann’s mother also has from a similar untreated congenital malformation and cannot walk for long distances.

On August 8th, Ann is scheduled to undergo multiple osteotomy surgery to correct the bowing in her legs. The treatment will have a great impact on her life, allowing her to walk freely again, engage with her peers, and continue her schooling.

“I want my daughter to be treated so that she can be able to walk like other girls,” says Ann’s mother.

Malia

Malia is a happy and beautiful two year old girl, living in the semi-arid region of Elgeyo Marakwet County in Kenya. Because her mother is still a college student, Malia lives with her grandmother, who runs a small business at a nearby shopping center. Recently, Malia fell and injured her right arm, while playing with other children at her home. Her grandmother brought her to a local clinic, where Malia's arm was bandaged. Malia was then referred to the hospital, because of the pain and swelling in her arm near the elbow. After Malia's arm was X-rayed, doctors discovered that she had sustained a fracture of her humerus bone, and she was sent for further evaluation at the Orthopedic Department of the hospital. The surgeons determined that due to the position of the fracture, and the fact that Malia's bones are still developing, surgery would be necessary to ensure that the bone in her arm grows properly. A long posterior splint was applied, which will stabilize Malia's arm until her surgery. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, has stepped up to help. As Malia's grandmother can only raise a portion of the funds needed for Malia's surgery - which is scheduled to take place on October 4th at AIC Kapsowar Hospital - she is seeking your support to cover the remaining $852 needed for Malia's procedure. Malia's grandmother says: ”I really feel bad when Malia is not happy. She has been keeping me good company, and my prayer is that she gets well and will be able to use her hand well in the future, especially when she goes to school.”
