Meet Michael, a 24-year old man from Kenya. He lives with his grandfather and works as a motorcycle taxi driver to provide for the two of them.
On August 8, Michael was going about his daily work routine when a car hit his motorcycle. Michael was hurt and could not feel his left limb. At the hospital, Michael was diagnosed with a fractured left femur. Doctors recommended surgery. If not treated, Micheal may suffer non-union, malunion, or infection. He will also not be able to walk again.
On August 17, Michael will undergo ORIF (open reduction internal fixation) treatment. To help fund it, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, requests $1,451.
Michael says, “I want to be treated and get back to work. I asked my friends to check on my grandfather. I hate being far from him because he has been there for me ever since I was a toddler.”
