November 26, 2019

David is a construction worker from Kenya. He is a widowed father of two children. He worked on construction sites to be able to support his children.

Around August this year, David was headed home when a speeding vehicle hit him from the back and sped off. Some good Samaritans picked him up and brought him to Kijabe hospital where he was found to have a left leg double fracture. He is not able to walk and is restricted to a wheelchair. David is also in pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On November 29th, David will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. Treatment will enable David to walk again and work so that he can provide for his children. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,451 to fund this procedure.

“I kindly request for financial help to get independent once again,” says David.
