James underwent a fracture repair so he can walk again.

The success of James’ treatment was met with a lot of gladness and appreciation, by both James, his family, and the neighbor who approached the Nazareth Hospital rep. for support. His surgery went on well and James had a smooth recovery. By the 4th day after surgery, James is walking using crutches and with the help of a physiotherapist.

James now has hope of walking again, unlike when he was feeling hopeless at home before.

“It is amazing to see myself walking again. I had lost hope but now I am so happy that I was given support and now I just need to wait for the healing. I am grateful to all those that assisted me, especially my neighbor,” said James.

James is is a 43-year-old man who is married with two children. James and his wife are casual laborers taking any job available, which means their income is limited and inconsistent. James was brought in on a stretcher by his wife and brother. His wife shared that they have had a very difficult life recently.

James has been bedridden following a fall and broken leg as they could not afford the cost of his treatment. Fortunately a neighbor intervened and now he is seeking help.

Our medical partner’s team will perform a fracture repair to heal his leg and they also plan to follow up to assess if he has weakened bones. If not treated James may never be able to walk again and his leg may heal with deformity. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is raising $1,049 to fund this procedure.

“I have been at home at the mercy of God. At least my neighbor directed us to Nazareth Hospital. I hope I can get help so that hopefully I can walk again,” said James quietly.
