Victor underwent a bone transport.

Upon successful surgery after months of long wait, Victor was able to walk out of the hospital with ease. The surgery reduced chances of further complications such as non-union or mal-union.

Victor says, “I am grateful for the support. My hope is to be able to provide for my family as I used to before.”

Victor is a 36-year-old man from Kenya who used to work as a fruit trader. Victor lives with his wife in a settlement in Nairobi, and together they have four children who, with the help of their grandparents, are all enrolled in school.

Several years ago, Victor suffered a severe road accident. He was admitted to the hospital for three months and underwent two surgeries. Victor was left in crutches, unable to work. Last year, Victor underwent a first stage bone transport, a technique that allows for the regeneration of bony tissue. Surgeons have now recommended that Victor undergo a second stage bone transport in order to enhance his future mobility and prevent further infection.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the cost of Victor’s operation. The procedure is scheduled to take place on June 29 and, once completed, should allow Victor to walk with ease and live comfortably with his family again.

“I would like to get well to continue providing for my family and educate my children,” says Victor.
