Joy is 5 years old shy girl. Joy was well until Tuesday evening 10th September when she fell from a loquat tree and sustained an injury on her right upper limb. Joy was brought to our hospital presented with complains of pain on her right hand. On arrival, an X-ray was done which showed that Joy had broken her right radius ulna.

Joy has swollen hand, she cannot lift her hand and she has discomfort accompanied by severe pain. Joy’s father is married to two wives and now has seven children. Because her mother is not able to have a good job, she does maize farming and life is difficult for her family due to low yields that have led to insufficient food in the family. Joy’s mother gets help and support from his brothers but wants to be able to be a strong woman for her and kids and provide well for them.
