David underwent a fracture repair procedure on his right hand.

David had successful treatment and being an active boy he was up and about soon. With this surgery, he can now grow up normally and soon he will continue with his playful spirits. His family was very appreciative.

Our local Watsi rep shared that unlike the first day when David’s mother was quiet, she was always smiling when we went to see them in the ward now. As the time came to go home, she could not imagine that soon her son would be ok again as she said, “I am so happy and grateful to see my son treated successfully. I am looking forward to the day that he will be running and playing using his hand again. God bless all those that assisted me.”

David is a 2-year-old baby boy from Kenya. David is a very happy and active child. He is an only child to his single-parent mother, and they live with his mother’s parents. David’s mother runs a small tea kiosk to earn a living and shared that she did not complete her college education when she had David.

On October 17th, while David was playing, he slipped and fell and fractured his hand. He is in pain and cannot move his hand freely.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On November 3rd, David will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him heal well and he will be able to use this hand without pain. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,049 to fund this procedure.

David’s mother shared, “I am very worried because of my baby. My parents and I are not able to pay for the operation he requires. I am pleading for support so that he can be well and continue playing and growing normally. God bless you.”
