Emmanuel received surgery to treat an ulcer on his leg and prevent a bone infection.

Emmanuel’s debridement and skin graft surgery went well and he looked and felt much better in the days following surgery. Now, it has been over a month and a half since he was discharged from the hospital, and Emmanuel is eagerly getting back into his routine. He has even hired three employees for his hotel!

“Although I still have to take it slow, I am so happy!” he said excitedly. “Please tell all those that have helped me that they may never understand what they did for me. I was so pained by the fact that I couldn’t work. Now I can focus on getting my life back together and settling down. I wish they could all come and eat [at] my hotel!”

Emmanuel is a hardworking man from Kenya. He used to own his own hotel next to a busy bus stop in Nairobi. He had a good relationship with his girlfriend, and he enjoyed a normal, healthy life.

All that has been put on pause by an injury. A trolley hit Emmanuel while he was at work and deeply cut his leg. His leg now has an ulcer on it which, if it’s not treated, will get worse and could turn into a bone infection.

Emmanuel loves the hotel business. He says he longs to re-open his hotel, get it running, and marry his girlfriend. For $900, we can cover the cost of Emmanuel’s wound debridement and skin graft surgery, alleviating his pain and enabling him to live a normal and productive life.
