Abraham underwent mobility-restoring fracture repair surgery.

36-year-old Abraham underwent successful and uneventful surgery after he had sustained a severe right tibia fracture. Abraham will begin physical therapy after nine weeks where he will begin his first unassisted steps. Currently, Abraham is walking with crutches as support until he is able to take his unassisted steps.

After his full recovery and when his bone heals to a significant degree, the ex-fixators shall be removed and he will return to his normal life. Abraham is hopeful that he will be able to go back to his previous job of driving a motorbike (bodaboda) so that he can provide for his family.

Abraham shared hopefully, “I have gone through a successful surgery and I know that I will be back on my feet soon.”

Abraham is a motorbike taxi operator from Kenya. He is married and a father of three children, the oldest is six and the youngest is two weeks old. The young couple depend on casual jobs to cater to the needs of their young family. Abraham is known to his friends and villagers as the tall and slim guy. He is a hardworking young man.

One week ago, Abraham was involved in a road traffic accident while he was riding on the motorbike and sustained a traumatic right tibia fibula fracture. He is in pain and he cannot walk.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On August 24th, Abraham will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This treatment will help Abraham’s leg heal well and he will no longer be in pain. He will also be able to walk on his own and continue working to care for his young family. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,016 to fund this procedure.

Abraham says, “I wish I was home to help my wife, it’s barely two weeks since we had our baby. She needs a lot of support. I feel sorry for her. If I could be walking now I would be providing for my family. I have faith that I will walk again so that I can continue supporting my family.”

Cleophas

Cleophas is a 23-year-old farmer and student from a Kenyan family of eleven. He is studying at a technical training institute, and grows potatoes to help him pay his school fees. His wife is also a student taking an information technology course at the same institute, and they have a 2-year-old son. When schools are in session, they live in a rental house near their school, but during the holiday they stay at home and focus on farming as it is their main source of income. Cleophas was preparing timber for repair of their maize store, when one of the timbers fell on his leg and injured him. The heavy timber broke his leg, and when he was examined, he had a large wound on his left leg with tendons and proximal tibia exposed. He was rushed to theatre for incision and drainage and his fracture was stabilized with a long leg posterior splint. Now Cleophas is unable to use his swollen and painful leg. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On November 8th, Cleophas will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. Cleophas will no longer be in pain, he will be able to use his leg and work to provide for family. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,145 to fund this medical procedure. Cleophas says, "I am the sole bread winner in the family. Sometimes I give a helping hand to my parents so that my siblings can study. I feel so sorry for myself now that I cannot use my limb. Please help me so that my family may not suffer.”
