Denis is a student from Kenya. He is the third child in a family of four. His mother is a single mother and works as a farmer.

In early August, Denis was traveling home on a motorbike taxi when it was hit by another vehicle. Denis was rushed to hospital with severe injuries on his face and right leg. He is unable to walk and can barely sit.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On August 23, Denis will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. After treatment, Denis will be able to walk again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.

His mother says, “My son is bedridden, all I can do is just watch him lay in bed and feed him. I hope he will undergo the surgery soon to put away my worries.”
