Beatrice is a farmer from Kenya. She plants maize and beans for her family’s consumption. She has three children.

Earlier this month, Beatrice sustained serious injuries on her right leg. She is currently walking with crutches because she is unable to walk or stand using her right leg.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 11, Beatrice will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. After surgery, Beatrice should be able to walk again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.

She says, “I want to receive treatment so that I can continue taking care of my children.”

Alice

Alice is a cheerful and talkative 63-year-old farmer from Kenya. She has seven children, with her youngest being 14 and her oldest being 40. Although she is married, Alice works to support her children alone. She and her family live on a small piece of land, half of which is reserved for a tea plantation. She grows and sells this tea in order to pay her children's school fees and provide them with their day-to-day needs. 15 years ago, Alice began experiencing troubling symptoms, including neck swelling, joint weakness, and constant fatigue. After attempting to alleviate her symptoms using herbal medication with no success, she decided to seek medical attention at a health center. The medics referred her to our medical partner's care center, AIC Kapsowar Hospital, for diagnosis and treatment. Fortunately, a friend provided her with money to pay for her transportation to the hospital. Once there, she was diagnosed with bilateral non-toxic multinodular goiter, meaning she has multiple lumps located within her thyroid glands. In order to stop her symptoms and prevent them from worsening, she must undergo surgery. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), is helping Alice receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo a thyroidectomy on August 15th at AMHF's care center. During this procedure, surgeons will remove all or part of her thyroid gland. This surgery will cost $936, and Alice and her family need help raising money. Alice says, “I would like to see my children achieve their dreams. I look forward to getting well to continue providing for and supporting them. Kindly help me.”
