Maxwell is a farmer from Malawi. Maxwell hails from Lithipe Village of Traditional Authority Kaphuka. He lives with his mother, while his other siblings have left home for their respective marital homes. Every day, he goes about his daily chores, attending to his tomatoes and sugarcane. He prepares his harvest for the market, confident that he will make a reasonable amount of profit. On May 30th, Maxwell was involved in a hit-and-run accident at dusk. He was on his way home from visiting family in a nearby village. He had crossed the road and made it to the pedestrian’s lane when he was hit by a speeding vehicle. Witnesses confirm that the driver of the vehicle did not stop to check on Maxwell. Maxwell was brought to a nearby hospital where he received treatment for the cuts and bruises he sustained. As he also injured his leg, Maxwell was referred to our medical partner's care center, Nkhoma Hospital, for further treatment. Doctors found that he fractured his right leg and needs an open reduction internal fixation surgical procedure was recommended. He is in pain and unable to walk due to the fracture. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, can help. On June 4th, Maxwell will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $636. This procedure will relieve him of the pain and help him walk easily again. Maxwell says,” I just want to be well again, for the sake of my family whom I worried about so much after the incident. I want them to be relieved that I am out of harm’s way completely.”
