Jackline is a 13-year-old girl from Kenya and the fifth born in a family of six children. Her father works as a farmer, while her mother is a housewife. In school, Jackline is a humble and hardworking Class 8 student. She aspires to be a doctor in the future so that she can be of help to her village, where the community feels they are marginalized and lack facilities like hospitals and schools.

Jackline was born with a condition known as bilateral genu valgum, or knock knees. This condition has severely affected her mobility. She cannot walk for a long distance or play with her friends, and this has greatly affected her self-esteem.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner’s care center can help. On December 1st, Jackline is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on her left leg, and then will subsequently undergo surgery on her right leg. The surgery will be of great impact because, once recovered, she will be able to walk well without pain and discomfort. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $1,224 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care.

Jackline shared, “I will be very happy if my legs are corrected and I can walk to school like my friends.” Hellen, Jackline’s mother, added, “We are appealing for help from well-wishers so that our daughter can walk normally.”

Maxensia

Maxensia is a mother of six who runs her family’s small retail shop while her husband is a tailor. Their firstborn is 22-years-old and she also has twins and two students in the 11th and fourth grades. Maxensia worries that her family is struggling to raise school fees for their children. Three years ago, Maxensia began to experience troubling symptoms, including a painless neck swelling that started after a flu-like illness. Later, the swelling became movable and she developed pains while swallowing. The swelling continued to increase in size but she never visited any medical facility for treatment. Currently, she can't bend down easily, especially while farming, and she can't carry heavy loads on her head either. Maxensia also shared that she experiences airway obstruction, especially during the cold season. Maxensia visited our medical partner's care center, Rushoroza Hospital, to seek medical attention. She was diagnosed with a non-toxic goiter and the surgeon recommends she have a thyroidectomy. Unfortunately, her family cannot afford the surgery cost, but she urgently needs the surgery to prevent her symptoms from getting worse. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Maxensia receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo a thyroidectomy on October 5th at our medical partner's care center. Surgeons will remove all or part of her thyroid gland. This procedure will cost $333, and she and her family need help to raise money. Maxensia says, “I hope to be considered for treatment because my family and I cannot afford this surgery on our own. I hope to look and live a normal life again so that I may comfortably proceed with my day-to-day duties and further develop my family.”
