Samuel is a man from Kenya. He makes a living working on construction sites. In early July, he fell from a two-story building. X-ray imaging showed a femur fracture thatt requires an implant. It is difficult for him to walk and he is in chronic pain

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On July 10, Samuel will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him walk easily again and go back to work once he has fully recovered. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,451 to fund this procedure.

Samuel says, “I hope that soon I will be able to walk with ease again.”
