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.”
