Dennis is a hardworking student and the firstborn in a family of two. He is in class eight and at the end of the year, he will be sitting for his national exams. He enjoys playing football with his friends. He lives with his single mother who works as a casual laborer getting work whenever she can. His mother describes Dennis as the only hope in their family.

On 11th August, as he was playing with his friends, Dennis fell and sustained a closed fracture of the left arm. He is unable to use his hand which is in severe pain. His education is also affected.

Dennis’ mother does laundry for the neighbors to support her family’s basic needs. With what she earns, she is unable to pay for her son’s surgery.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 2nd, Dennis will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. He will be able to use his hand, experience no pain and he will go back to school. He will also continue enjoying playing football with his friends. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,049 to fund this procedure.

Dennis mother says, “I struggle a lot providing for my family. I am not in a position to pay my son’s hospital bill. I plead for help so that he gets the required treatment and he may continue with his education. He is the hope of our family.”
