Aiden underwent a fracture repair procedure on his right arm.

Aiden had a successful fracture repair surgery after completely displacing his right supracondylar. Aiden, who previously could not get out of bed, is now able to walk around and play with his friends. Eight weeks after his surgery, Aiden showed off to the hospital staff with confidence of how the surgery has impacted his life and now he can flex his elbow with ease.

Zuena, Aiden’s mother said, “I hope you will continue to help and heal with the same warmth and closeness that you had to my son. I am most grateful for all that.” Aiden’s mother is looking forward to his son’s fast recovery so that she can be able to look for work to do and feed her children.

Aiden is a four-year-old boy from Kenya. He is a playful kindergartener who hails from Kanam Keener Village in Turkana County.

On November 13th, Aiden sustained a severe injury to his right upper limb after he fell on a hard ground while playing with his friends. His aunt brought him to the hospital after she heard his cries outside. Aiden was reviewed by our partner doctors, who conducted an X-Ray revealing a fracture to his right supracondylar or upper arm bone. Because he was in pain and could not move his hand, doctors applied skin traction to stabilize his fracture and realign the normal position of the bone. Aiden will need an Open Reduction and External Fixation (OREF) procedure to fully treat his injury.

Unfortunately, this procedure is costly for Aiden and his family. Aiden is the second born child in a family of three. His mother is a single mother who earns wages from laundry labor. Because she lacks a stable job, she is struggling financially, exacerbated especially by the COVID pandemic. She decided to take Aiden to stay with his aunt because it was difficult for her to support three children by herself. Aiden and his family are appealing for financial help.

On November 16th, Aiden will undergo an OREF procedure at our medical partner’s care center, which will cost $801. Once recovered, he will be able to move his hand again and carry out daily life activities as normal.

Aiden’s mother shared, “He has so much pain. I hope he gets treated and feels better and will be well again”.

Peace

Peace is a 60-year-old farmer and a mother of seven children. She is also widowed as her husband unfortunately passed away this year in May due to cancer of the stomach. Peace works incredibly hard to support and take care of her children by earning a living from the coffee and banana plantation that her husband left her with. In addition, she weaves millet baskets and mats earning her an extra income. However, she shared that due to her age, poor eyesight hinders her from weaving now. For a year now, Peace has been experiencing issues of stomach pain, backache, general body weakness paralysis, excessive bleeding, and great discomfort. At first, she thought it was simple abdominal pain and attended the clinic. She was misdiagnosed and given urinary tract infection treatment but was not relieved of her pain. Since then, Peace has been diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus to help her heal. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $219 to fund Peace's surgery. She is scheduled to undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner’s care center on August 5th. Once recovered, Peace will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Peace says: “I hope that once I am given financial support, my surgery will be possible, I will get well and continue with farming because my children are still in school and they need my support because they have no one else.”
