Faith did not need to have her fracture repair surgery.

Our medical partner just shared good news that Faith’s surgery was postponed so that her doctors could see if her fracture could begin healing without surgical intervention, and she is now doing well. Her doctors have been following up to see if she needs to return for her surgery. Faith’s parents are grateful for the support, but shared that she is healing very well already. We are grateful for your support for another patient and family in need.

Faith is a talkative four-year-old girl from Kenya. She is the second born child in a family of three.

On December 24th, Faith was brought to Watsi’s Medical Partner Care Center Kapsowar Hospital by her mother. She had a bad fall two days prior while playing with her friends. Faith sustained an injury on her left hand and is unable to flex her elbow. Upon arrival to the hospital, they conducted an x-ray which confirmed that she had a displaced supracondylar fracture. Doctors recommend that her fracture be fixed quickly so as to avoid improper healing. Faith has been admitted in the pediatrics ward and is waiting to undergo a fracture repair procedure. She is currently experiencing pain and discomfort.

Though Faith’s surgery has been scheduled, her family is still uncertain on how her care will be funded. Faith’s father is a small shopkeeper and her mother is a housewife. Her father earns an average of US$52 in a month, and shared that his income is too little to meet all the needs of his children. Their family said it feels impossible to raise funds for Faith’s surgery. They are requesting any well-wisher to support them so that their daughter can have this operation.

Fortunately, on December 28th Faith will undergo a type of fracture repair procedure called an open reduction and external fixation. Once recovered, her quality of life will significantly improve and she be able to use her hand normally again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $801 to fund this procedure.

Her mother shared, “Nothing worries me like watching my child cry in pain. It has been a nightmare to me and a difficult time in our family. We are looking forward to seeing her in good spirits again.”
