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.
