Timoth is a 22-year-old man from Nairobi County, Kenya. He has five siblings and lived with his father in Murang’a for a while after his mother passed away. Timoth decided to move to Nairobi due to a difficult home situation, and for the past year, he has been driving a motorcycle as a casual laborer.
On June 17th, 2023, Timoth was driving his motorcycle and was hit by another vehicle. He was rushed first to a nearby health center for first aid and then to our medical partner’s care center. X-rays of Timoth’s leg showed that he had a closed fracture in his left femur. Timoth said that since the accident, he’s been experiencing a lot of pain, but he hopes to receive treatment so he can get back to his normal life.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help. On June 22nd, Timoth will undergo a fracture repair procedure called open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will relieve Timoth of his pain and enable him to return to work. Now, AMH is requesting $1049 to help fund Timoth’s procedure. Timoth is subsidizing $148.00 of this amount.
Timoth said, “I had many plans for my life. I had hopes that once I completed paying for the Motorbike and it became mine, I would greatly improve my status. Unfortunately, this happened, and now I can only pray for support so that once recovery takes place, I can get back to my normal life”
