Alex underwent hand surgery following a road accident.

Alex underwent a successful fracture repair surgery. He is no longer in pain and feels more confident and comfortable lifting his hand. Our partner was glad to share that Alex had an uneventful stay in the hospital. He is on track to a full recovery and he is looking forward to using his hand so that he can carry out all of his fatherly duties.

Alex shared, “I was unable to lift my hand nor move my fingers but now I can. I want to be able to provide for my family again.”

Alex is a motorcycle taxi operator from Kenya. He is married and has been blessed with a three-month-old baby boy. He works as a motorcycle taxi driver to support his young family. His wife is a stay-at-home mom and they live in a two-room rental house in Kapsowar.

Alex was recently involved in a road accident. He was riding his bodaboda (motorcycle taxi) when he lost control and fell into a ditch. He fractured his right hand and suffered bruises and lacerations on his face and other body parts. Since the accident, Alex has been unable to work and support his family.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On June 16th, Alex will undergo a fracture repair procedure called an open reduction and internal fixation. This treatment will help him heal well. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $848 to fund this procedure.

“My hope is to get treated so that I can resume my fatherly role of supporting my family,” shared Alex.
