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.”

Grace

Grace is a small scale farmer and a mother of four children. Her husband died 18 years ago and left her a small house that later fell down beyond repair but she has recently managed to put up a small mud-made single room for shelter. All her children were not able to attend school. Her eldest is now 35 years old and is married while the youngest is 18 years old. She relies on the sale of her farm produce to cater to her basic needs. Four years ago, Grace began to experience troubling symptoms, including a small painless swelling which recently started increasing in size. She has never visited any health facility to seek treatment. Currently, she experiences airway obstruction and severe headaches whenever she carries a heavy load and this has greatly affected her farming. She occasionally develops high temperatures, especially around her chest and neck. She was diagnosed with a goiter and after a review by the surgeon, a thyroidectomy was recommended. She needs surgery to prevent her symptoms from getting worse. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Grace receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo a thyroidectomy on November 2nd at our medical partner's care center. Surgeons will remove all or part of her thyroid gland. This procedure will cost $333, and she and her family need help raising money. Grace says, “I pray that I may look normal again through surgery. I hope to live a comfortable life because the swelling makes me feel abnormal. I will continue with farming once I recover after the surgery.”
