Kalu received multiple surgeries to treat her fractured hip and lacerations on her chin.

Kalu is a 16-year-old girl who recently fell from a tree while she was collecting leaves for her family’s cattle. She fractured her hip and broke a tooth in the fall.

Kalu’s family farms for a living but they must often supplement their income by taking on hard labor jobs, like carrying sand for construction sites. Kalu’s brother took out a loan just to get her to the hospital, but the family cannot afford the treatment she needs to recover properly. Kalu is in a lot of pain and has difficulty moving her right leg. Surgery can correct her fracture and allow Kalu to avoid long-term deformity and disability.

After she recovers, Kalu hopes to continue to help her family and complete her education. She is studying in grade seven and is looking forward to advancing to at least grade ten. Let’s help Kalu live without pain so she can pursue her dreams!
