Geofry is a young man from Kenya. He is the fifth of six children. Currently he works on construction sites.

Earlier this month, he slipped and fell and sustained a closed fracture on the radius and ulna of his left hand. It is difficult for him to use his hand, and he is in pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On February 21, Geofry will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him heal and use his hand again to work. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.

He says, “I plead for help because my income is very little and I have no one to help me. I hope to be well and go back to my job to support myself.”
