His family decided not to return for surgery....

March 19, 2019

Ai is a boy from Burma. He lives with his parents and four siblings. In his free time, Ai likes to play with his friends and swim.

When Ai was five months old, he burned his right palm and hand. He is no longer able to move the fingers on his right hand. He and his mother visited our medical partner, who agreed to help Ai access treatment for his hand.

Now, a contracture release surgery has been scheduled for March 22. Our medical partner is requesting $1,500 to fund this procedure.

Ai said, “In the future I want to earn money for my family, and I want to support my parents when I grow up.”

Richard

Richard is a farmer from Kenya. Father of six Richard is a small scale farmer. He plants maize and beans in his farm. Richard doesn’t have a good house to live in. He stays in a two room house roofed with grass. None of his children completed school due to low income in the family. The family has gone through a hard-time that they even lack food some of the days. Two months ago, Richard was involved in a road traffic accident and sustained a complex femur fracture on his left leg. Richard was brought to our hospital where he underwent a successful intramedullary nail femur surgery on 8/08/2019. He was discharged where he has been recovering at home. On his first surgical review, the surgeon realized that Richard is unable to get full extension of the femur. On further examination he realized that Richard had shortened femur and suggested that he needs revision surgery to fix his this condition for previous surgery done that was not successful. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On October 07, Richard 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 $968 to fund this procedure. Richard says, “I am really worried about the fate of my leg. I thought it was getting well. I have nothing to offer for my second surgery. Help me raise funds to make it possible and a success."
