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.

Aye

Aye is a 47-year-old mother, living with her daughter in Thailand. Up until four months ago, Aye worked as a day laborer on a farm. Because she has had to stop working, Aye's daughter left school, and now works as a nanny to help support her mother. Aye's siblings have also stepped up to support their sister. Five years ago, Aye began to experience pain on the left side of her body. She also developed a fever and vomiting, lost her appetite, and found it difficult to sleep. In addition, she experienced night sweats and a stiff neck. Aye was treated by a local health worker, and for a while, she felt better. However, in June 2021, her symptoms worsened, and she went to Mae Tao Clinic (MTC), where she was told to go to the hospital. Due to a lack of funds, Aye could not go to the hospital, and was treated at a local clinic, instead. In April 2022, Aye's symptoms returned, and she went back to Mae Tao Clinic, where she was diagnosed with stones in her left kidney. This time she did go the hospital, where she was told that she would need to have surgery, to remove the stones from her kidney. Thanks to our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Aye is scheduled for surgery to remove the kidney stones on October 3rd, at Mae Sot General Hospital. After she has recovered, Aye should be able to return to her work and to enjoying her life, free from all of her uncomfortable symptoms. Aye and her family need your help to cover the $1,500 needed to pay for her surgery. Aye said: "I am happy that I will be able to receive surgery through donors. Thank you so much for saving my life.”
