Jospina is a farmer from Kenya. She is 66 years old and resides in a small village in a very hilly region of the Rift Valley.
About a week ago, Jospina was fetching wood to use while cooking. She tripped on a rock and sustained a fracture in her left hand. Although she has received first aid care, Jospina is currently experiencing pain and cannot concentrate on her responsibilities.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On April 19, Jospina will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. We hope this treatment will relieve Jospina of pain so she can return home to take care of her family. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $771 to fund this procedure.
“I am in need of treatment because this pain is so severe,” says Jospina.
