Cyrus underwent surgery to repair a fracture from a road accident.

Cyrus’ surgery was successful! His doctors implanted a nail into his right femur that will allow him to recover faster from his motorcycle accident. The surgery has greatly reduced the risk of further complications, such as the bone not aligning properly as it heals and severe pain. He will soon be able to walk, return to his work selling second-hand clothes, and continue caring for his wife and four children. He feels very grateful for the support offered and is excited to be healing.

Cyrus shared, “Thank you for supporting my surgery. I am able to ambulate with ease and am hopeful that soon, I will return to work.”

Cyrus is a businessman from Kenya and the father of four children. He sells second-hand clothes to make a living. His wife takes up small jobs to complement his income.

He was involved in a road accident as a pillion passenger while rushing home to avoid trouble with the police during the current COVID-19 curfew in the country. While riding a motorcycle, they lost control as they were trying to avoid hitting a pedestrian. He suffered a closed femur fracture and was rushed to the hospital. He is in pain and cannot walk.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On April 7th, Cyrus will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him walk easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,451 to fund this procedure.

Cyrus says, “I am in great pain and worried of the financial cost required. Kindly help me. I look forward to continue providing for my children.”

Komson

Komson is a 35-year-old cane juice seller from Cambodia. He has been married for 11 years and lives with his wife and two daughters. The oldest child is nine years old in grade 3, while his younger child is not yet in school. When Komson is not working, he likes listening to the radio, watching TV, and helping around the house with cleaning, cooking, and caring for his daughters. On January 3rd, 2021, Komson was involved in a motor vehicle crash involving a dog. This accident caused him to fracture his right femur. His family decided on a Khmer traditional treatment, where a bamboo stalk is placed on the affected leg to support the femur. He took some medications and went home. After a few days, his family took him to the provincial hospital near their home for an X-ray, where he was referred to Children's Surgical Centre. There, they assessed his fracture and saw that his broken leg is much shorter than his other leg. His leg is swollen and very painful, and it is difficult for him to walk. Surgeons decided to put him in traction for 5 days and then conduct an open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) of his right femur. On January 18th, Komson will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. This procedure will help him walk again so that he can continue to work and support his family. He wants to make sure he has enough money to send his daughters to school. Komson shared, "I hope that after surgery, my right femur will be repaired and I will no longer have pain or swelling. I am anxious to get back to my job and supporting my family."
