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.

Richard

Richard is a farmer from Kenya. Father of six Richard is a small scale farmer. He plants maize and beans in his farm. Richard doesn’t have a good house to live in. He stays in a two room house roofed with grass. None of his children completed school due to low income in the family. The family has gone through a hard-time that they even lack food some of the days. Two months ago, Richard was involved in a road traffic accident and sustained a complex femur fracture on his left leg. Richard was brought to our hospital where he underwent a successful intramedullary nail femur surgery on 8/08/2019. He was discharged where he has been recovering at home. On his first surgical review, the surgeon realized that Richard is unable to get full extension of the femur. On further examination he realized that Richard had shortened femur and suggested that he needs revision surgery to fix his this condition for previous surgery done that was not successful. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On October 07, Richard will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him walk easily again Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure. Richard says, “I am really worried about the fate of my leg. I thought it was getting well. I have nothing to offer for my second surgery. Help me raise funds to make it possible and a success."
