Peter is a 40-year-old man from Kenya. He is married with four children, who are all in school. Peter is a welder, while his wife is a vendor at their local market.
Two months ago, Peter’s left knee and lower leg began to swell and cause him pain. He is no longer working, and he must use a stick as a walking aid.
On September 7, Peter will undergo surgery to treat his knee. This procedure will cost $1,165.
“I will be happy to see my leg treated because I will be able to resume my work. I will be able to walk and as well provide for my family. I lack words to say but I plead for your support,” Peter says.
