Titus is a 37-year-old father from Kenya who lives with his wife and four-year-old child. Titus used to provide for his family as a bus driver, however he has been unable to work since a bus accident caused a fracture in Titus’s left tibia. His wife now works on farms whenever she can.

Because Titus’s fractured leg has rendered him unable to walk, doctors have advised that he receive a bone transport. For his first bone transport, Titus organized a fundraiser with friends and family, however he unfortunately could not generate enough money to foot his hospital bill.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to fund a second bone transport for Titus, which is scheduled to take place on June 23. Without treatment, Titus will be at risk of malunion of his tibia, meaning that the fracture may heal improperly and permanently impede his mobility.
