Patrick is a 42-year-old father and construction worker from Kenya. He lives in Nairobi with his two kids.

This father is the sole provider for his household. His income is just barely sufficient to meet the family’s needs. All three live together in a small shared rental room.

Patrick worked as a construction worker until he was attacked on the night of February 25. He sustained several head fractures and is in need of a craniotomy. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,495 to provide the much-needed procedure, which is scheduled for February 28. Given his stalled ability to work, Patrick and his family are not able to pay for treatment.

“I want to be with my children. I wish to get well and continue providing for them,” Patrick shares.
