Abiud is a baby from Kenya. Abiud was born and raised in a small village called Tuturung where most of the inhabitants work in farms or other small not very stable jobs. Abiud parents don’t have an education so they don’t speak Kiswahili but a local Kalenjin language. They live in a small mud hut with palm frawns as a roof. They fetch water from one stream that serves the whole village they live. His family gets its food from their small farm and consists mostly of cassava, millet, and sorghum.
On Monday 9/9/2019, Abiud came to hospital accompanied with his parents presented with history of fall while crawling on top of a bench and sustained injury on the left hand. An He can not use his hand and is in pain.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 12, Abiud will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. The treatment will help his hand heal well and he will be able to use it again Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $771 to fund this procedure.
His father says, “I just want my child not to be in pain anymore and be healthy and happy and have a good life.”
