Simon is a man from Kenya. He is a father of two children. He operates a small business.

In September 2018, Simon was in a road accident. Since then, he has undergone four surgeries to treat injuries to his tibia bone. Now, he needs to undergo a bone transport to treat a bone infection. If not treated, Simon will be at risk of further complications, including a total bone infection that might result into amputation.

Fortunately, his surgery is scheduled for March 6. Now, he needs help raising $1,500 to fund this procedure.

Simon says, “I hope that soon I will continue providing for my family.”
