Josphat is a 25-year-old father from Kenya. He operates a motorcycle taxi business, and his wife works at home. The family lives in a two-room house in their ancestral land. This is a relatively dry region of the country, where agriculture is unreliable.
On Christmas of 2016, Josphat fell from from his motorcycle. He was not wearing a helmet, so he sustained head injuries. He was brought to our medical partner’s hospital, AIC Kijabe Hospital, where he received first aid and underwent a CT scan.
Since then, Josphat has experienced a headache, and his eyes have swollen. He has spent two weeks in the hospital, which has prevented him from working and providing for his family. Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo a craniotomy and frontal fracture repair on January 6. These procedures will repair the injuries in his skull. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,495 to fund this treatment.
“I want to be well,” says Josphat, “and to continue to provide for my family who need me.”
