Mitchele

Mitchele is a playful three-year-old girl who hails from Mafuta in Uasin Gishu County in Kenya. She is the last born child in a family of five. On January 10th, Mitchele sustained a severe injury to her right upper limb after she fell on the ground while playing with her siblings. Her mother brought to the hospital to seek care. Doctors assessed her injury and conducted an x-ray, which revealed a fracture to her right supracondylar. Because she was in pain and could not move her hand, Mitchele was admitted to the hospital for skin traction to stabilize her fracture and realign the normal position of the bone. She will need a type of fracture repair surgery called an open reduction and external fixation to unite and heal her fracture. However, this procedure is costly for Mitchele and her family. Her mother earns wages from laundry and farm labour in their village, and her father is a boda boda taxi driver to complement her income. Mitchele and her family live in a rented two-roomed iron sheet house. Her family is in need of financial support, and appeals to anyone reading Mitchele's story to help their family raise the amount needed for her treatment. Mitchele will undergo a fracture repair procedure on her upper right arm on January 19th. Once recovered, her quality of life will significantly improve and she will be able to return to playing with her siblings. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $801 to fund this procedure. Mitchele's mother shared, “I hope my daughter gets treated and recovers well so that I can return to working and supporting our family.”
