about Ronald's recovery.

January 24, 2019

Ronald is a farmer from Kenya. He is a husband and father of three who is working as a motorcycle driver to support his young family.

Recently, Ronald was involved in a road traffic accident. His injuries were severe, and he lost consciousness. He suffered a hip fracture and is now not able to walk or work.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On January 24, Ronald will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This condition causes him pain and discomfort, and this is making it difficult for him to work. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $966 to fund this procedure.

“At first I thought I was going to lose my leg. I really thought about my young family. Thanks to the doctor for giving me hope. I am ready to undergo this surgery,” says Ronald.
