Maureen is ten years old and lives in Kenya. She is a student and loves playing with her friends. She lives with her younger sibling and her mother. Her mother is a single parent and works as a farmhand.
Maureen fell at school while playing with her friends, which caused her to dislocate her right arm. She was taken to a nearby hospital, where a cast was applied. But since then her condition has deteriorated. Maureen has been going to physiotherapy to help her condition. Finally, she was referred to our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation.
Once she arrived to receive care, it was determined that she would need corrective surgery to help her arm heal properly. The surgery is scheduled for February 8 and will cost $1,165. However, her mother cannot afford the care and is seeking financial assistance.
Maureen’s mother says, “I am appealing for help since I can’t afford to pay for the surgery and my daughter is in pain. Kindly help us. God bless you.”
