Meet Patrick, a 42-year-old father and the caretaker of the health center of our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Patrick is the sole provider of his family in Kenya, and cares for five children with two in secondary school.

In order to raise money for public transportation to AMHF’s centre, Patrick began selling tress. “However, a tree fell on him, injuring his head and arm,” explains AMHF. The accident fractured his radial and ulna. Now, he cannot feel his right arm and is at risk of infection if he does not receive medical treatment soon.

$1410 in funding will allow Patrick to receive diagnostic x-rays, physical therapy, a resetting cast for his hand, and recovery time at the centre. “Treatment will eliminate pain and numbness in Patrick’s hand,” AMHF shares. “Possibility of further infections will be limited. Once recovered, Patrick will be able to use his hand and work again.”

Let support Patrick in getting the care he needs to get well and support his family.
