Magdaline underwent a fracture repair surgery.

After suffering a left femur fracture, Magdaline had surgery on 13th December. She recovered well and was discharged after learning how to walk with crutches. Magdaline will be on crutches for the next six months before she starts stepping on her feet. Magdaline will be on follow up for physio exercises to restore her movement and well-functioning of her left leg. The importance of walking was emphasized both in the hospital and at home.

“I enjoyed my stay in the hospital, there was relatively little pain or discomfort after the surgery.” Magdaline says, “I enjoyed a good feeling of accomplishment after the surgery, I rapidly regained strength.”

Magdaline is a farmer from Kenya and a talkative mother of seven. Magadline hails from Kisoko Village, a stony and hilly area in Elgeyo marakwet with low socioeconomic status and the main occupation for the people living around the village is raising goats and planting millet. Magdaline’s husband is deaf and hasn’t found a job. He spends his days helping his wife in the farm or help take care of goats they have at home.

On 6th December, Magdaline had just left her house to attend a ceremony when she slightly fell on a hard surface sustaining injury on the left femur. She is not able to work since she can not walk and this is affecting the family because she is the main breadwinner.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On December 11th, Magdaline will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help her walk again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.

Magdaline says, “I want to receive treatment, get healed, and continue supporting my family.”
