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.”
