Samuel is 31 years old and a father of three children. He and his family live in Kenya. To make ends meet, Samuel operates a small butchery, while his wife is a casual laborer.
Samuel’s skull was injured on January 5. He was rushed to a private hospital for medical intervention. Since the incident, Samuel has not been able to speak, and he experiences headaches and pain. His doctors have recommended a craniotomy, a surgery which will repair the injured side of his skull. Samuel is scheduled to undergo surgery on January 11.
Samuel’s operation has already been subsidized by $364. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, has requested $1,495 more to fund his hospital stay and surgery.
“I want my brother to be well for his children and wife,” Samuel’s brother says. “He is their only source of livelihood.”
