Jacob is a 43-year-old security guard from Kenya. He lives at home with his wife, a farmer, and six children.
After heading home from work one evening, Jacob was hit by a truck. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), shares that a group of good samaritans brought Jacob to a local hospital.
Doctors determined that Jacob has two fractured bones in his right leg, the tibia and femur, and requires surgery to treat the fractures. Jacob’s family does not make sufficient income to afford the cost of surgery.
“My wife and children all look upon me for any financial needs. I don’t know what they would do if I am not able to work again, “ shares Jacob.
$1,125 will fund an ORIF (open reduction internal fixation) surgery to repair the fractures, and thereby alleviate his pain and allow him to regain use of his leg.
“I hope that God will help me to have a successful surgery so that I can be strong again to go back to my work,” Jacob shares.
