September 2, 2020

Paul is a manual worker from Kaugi Village in Kenya. He is married and they have five children. Paul, who is the breadwinner in his family, is a casual driver while his wife takes care of the house and their children.

In March, Paul was going home after a long day of work when he was hit by a vehicle that did not stop and left him severly hurt on the road. He was helped by good Samaritans and taken to the hospital. He sustained an open fracture on his left tibia/fibula and had an injury on his bladder. He is still in pain and cannot walk on his own.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 3rd, Paul will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. After healing, he will be able to walk again and his pain will be gone. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,049 to fund this procedure.

Paul quietly shared, “I have suffered for the last five months and my family needs my support. I am asking for help.” Paul’s Pastor added, “I have done my best to help him. I hope he can get help and be well to continue caring for his family.”
