Carolyne is a casual laborer from Kenya. Carolyne has been blessed with four children. She doesn’t have a permanent job hence she does all sorts of low income jobs to feed her family. Her husband is a small scale farmer who depend on seasonal plants like sorghum and Mangoes. Due to scarce jobs in their village, Carolyne enjoys spending her free time taking care of her children.

About four months ago, Carolyne suffered an injury on her left hand after she fell from a mango tree. It is difficult for her to work and is in chronic pain. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On October 2nd, Carolyne will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help her work again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.

Carolyne says, “I have been struggling with pain for these four months. Working would be very difficult at times but because I had no money for treatment, I tried to ignore the pain I was in”.
