Max underwent surgery for his broken arm.

Max’s surgery for his fractured arm went well as planned. After fully healing, Max will be able to use his hand well and do all the things that he enjoys. He will be required to visit the clinic for checkup so that doctors can follow his treatment until he is completely healed.

Max’s father told us, “Thank you very much for the help and standing with Max. This is the biggest smile I have seen from him since he got his injury. He has been crying all along.”

Max is a young boy from a rural village in Kenya and the only son in his family. He recently lost his dear mother who passed on after a long battle with diabetes and heart complications. Their family is currently servicing debts accrued from his mother’s several visits to different facilities as they were forced to deposit their grandfather’s title deed to be able to bury Max’s mother. His father is a driver who used to work for a private lorry owner. However, he lost his job because of his continued absence from work to take care of Max’s mother during her numerous hospital admissions.

On August 20th, Max broke his arm while scaling an 8ft. ladder on their farm in the Kiambu region. Unfortunately, he tripped and came down tumbling, causing him to break his arm. He is in pain and cannot use his left hand at all now.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 23rd, Max will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him heal well and he will be able to use his hand with no pain. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to fund this procedure.

Max’s father shared, “If my son doesn’t get this surgery, he might not be able to use his arm again. He is young with a full life ahead of him.”
