Estevan's treatment was fully funded on August 23, 2012.

Estevan is a 4-month-old baby boy with a cleft lip and palate. He will need surgery to repair these defects, but first Estevan needs nutritional rehabilitation because he is so malnourished from not being able to breastfeed (an incredibly sad, but common problem that infants with a cleft lip and palate face).

Estevan’s mother is very attentive, but is scared that she won’t be able to provide her baby with the care he needs to thrive. She has limited financial resources, and cannot afford the expensive nutritional supplements, let alone surgery, Estevan needs.

Let’s raise the $400 Estevan needs to get well soon!

Dismas

Dismas is a boda boda taxi driver from Kenya. He is a bright and hardworking young man from a highland region in Elgeyo Marakwet County. Dismas is the third born in a family of four. He studied up to the 7th grade in primary school, but then had to stop attending due to the school fees. Now he lives in a rental house with his wife and their son. His parents live in a place far from him in a semi-arid area, and he moved to look for work and to earn a living. Before his recent accident, Dismas was employed as a motorcycle driver and his limited wages enabled him to sustain his family and give his parents a little support. After a severe road traffic accident about three weeks ago, Dismas was taken to the hospital on a stretcher and is still unable to walk. The bill for his care has been accumulating and he had no funds to pay due to his current state and inability to work. Well-wishers helped him pay the bill and he was discharged home with his fracture stabilized on a splint. One of his brothers reached out to a friend who knew of our medical partner's care center, Kapsowar Hospital, and he was brought in to see if they could help him. An x-ray found that he sustained fractures of the distal tibia and fibula. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On April 26th, Dismas will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. After he heals from this surgery, he will be able to walk easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $1145 to fund this procedure. Dismas says, "It really hurts when I see my family suffering. I am worried about their future if my condition doesn’t change. Kindly help me get well so that they may not be impacted even more.”
