Peter is a 34-year-old man from Kenya who works as a farmer on his parents’ land. “He also earns some money working on other people’s farms,” shares our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF).
In May 2016, Peter was in a motorcycle accident that left him with a fractured mandible. He was hospitalized for two weeks and had plates fitted on his jaws. Peter has had difficulty eating. He is not able to work, and has to rely on his brothers for daily upkeep.
After he was discharged from the hospital, Peter was advised to come for surgery to repair the broken jaw. With help from family and friends, he has raised $208 towards associated costs with his care, but needs help from Watsi to cover the treatment fee of $660.
“If not treated, Peter will continue experiencing pain and numbness on his mandible. He might also get an infection further compromising his health,” AMHF says.
“I want to be well and continue working and providing for myself,” Peter shared.
