Bernard is a laborer from Kenya. He is married and has four children.

In early December, Bernard was hit by a moving vehicle. He sustained a closed fracture of his right clavicle bone. He is not able to move his shoulder freely and is in constant pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On December 20, Bernard will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help his healing, and he will be able to use his arm. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.

“I am so desperate and feel like I may never be able to use my hand anymore, yet I have a family to care for. Kindly help me,” says Bernard.
