Meet Abraham, a talkative, 39 year old man, from the highlands of Elgeyo Marakwet County in Kenya. Abraham is a married man with six children who are in school, and another one who is married. He lives with his family members in their rural home, where he works as a small-scale potato farmer and casual laborer. His wife is a homemaker who takes care of their family, and helps Abraham with some of the casual jobs that come his way. Abraham was riding his motorbike recently, when he accidentally hit a sheep that was crossing the road. He and the bike rolled several times before he was rescued by a good Samaritan, who brought him to the local hospital. He was badly bruised, and had significant wounds to his pelvic region and to his right foot. While the pelvic wound has healed well, the injury to his ankle - which was stabilized with a splint - is not healing as well, because so much tissue was lost. Until this injury is successfully treated, Abraham is in pain, and unable to use his leg, which means that he cannot work and provide for his family. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Abraham receive the care that he requires. On July 19th, surgeons at AIC Kapsowar Hospital, will perform a surgery to enable Abraham to regain the use of his leg. Now he needs your help to fund this $1,478 procedure. Abraham says: "I got involved in an accident that almost cost my life, but I thank God for giving me another chance. I cannot work well due to the state of my lower limb, and I am kindly requesting help so that I may recover quickly and be able to work as before.”
