Patrick underwent hand surgery with other support.

Our Medical Partner just shared an update with us about Patrick. The surgeon re-examined Patrick and changed his treatment plan from an open reduction to a closed reduction. Along with this change, the hospital was able to find support from other well-wishers to support his costs and have asked that Watsi support is allocated to other patients in need of surgery.

Patrick is a casual worker from Kenya. He is married and they have four children. Patrick’s wife is not employed, she is a housewife, and Patrick is a casual worker searching for jobs at construction sites.

On Saturday May 9th, as he was working, Patrick slipped and fell from the 1st floor of a building they were constructing. He sustained a closed fracture-dislocation on his left hand. He is not able to use his hand and is in pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On May 14th, Patrick will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him work and use his hand freely with no pain. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,099 to fund this procedure.

“I and my family are unable to meet the cost of this important treatment, yet I am the breadwinner, my family is depending on me. I will be very grateful if Watsi can help me,” said Patrick.

Collins

Collins is a young boy from the northeastern slopes of Mt Kenya in Meru County, Kenya. He is 5 years old and is the firstborn in a family of two children. His mother is a housewife, while his father is a mason. Collins was born with clubfoot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. Since birth, he has had serial casting treatment, but his condition has yet to improve. Both his mother and his sibling also have neglected clubfoot conditions. Collins has difficulty with walking and wearing shoes, and is unable to play with other kids. In January 2020, he was able to undergo a left posterior medial release (PMR) with Watsi support, and his foot has corrected well. As a result of the surgery, he is able to wear his left shoe and his walking has improved. However, his right foot is still deformed and requires surgery for him to be able to walk comfortably and confidently on both feet. Fortunately, Collins' family traveled back to our medical partner's care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on his right foot on January 11th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,286 to fund Collins's clubfoot repair. This surgery will be very impactful for Collins because he will be able to walk, play, and enjoy life like other children. His mother is grateful for the support for his first surgery, and again appeals for support for this procedure as their income level is not high enough to afford his needed care. Collins' mother shared, “I would like to thank CURE Hospital and AMH-Watsi who made possible my son’s first surgery. May the almighty God bless you. I continue to plead for support for the planned surgery on his right foot so that he can fully walk without any difficulty.”
