Stephen received surgery to fix his broken jaw.

“THANK YOU!! I am happy that I can go back to work soon,” writes Stephen. “My family depends on me and the past few days have been hard for them.”

Stephen’s mandible fracture was successfully operated on by doctors at African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF).

“Stephen’s surgery was successful,” AMHF tells us. “He is now recovering and looking forward to going back to work after a few weeks. He is still not completely able to have a full solid diet but he is slowly getting better.”

“I barely earn enough to support my family. I thank God for Watsi and the work it is doing to help those who are in need like me,” says Stephen.

Meet Stephen, a 27-year-old father from Kenya who has a fractured jaw. “Stephen is married and a father of three young ones. He works as a night guard at a local school while his wife stays at home taking care of their children,” shares our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Stephen’s jaw was broken when a robber assaulted him and stole his phone. “Because the incident occurred outside his place of employ, Stephen’s employer has refused to pay for his treatment,” relays AMHF.

“Stephen is not able to chew his meals nor speak well,” AMHF continues. “If the surgery is not done soon, the fracture could become infected which would lead to more complications in his treatment and recovery.”
