John is a man from Kenya. He is a father of two children who are in primary school.

A little over a year ago, John sustained a spinal injury when he fell from a tree. He has not been able to afford the necessary care to treat his injury. Now, he has been diagnosed with cervical mylopathy, a degenerative disorder that causes gait imbalance and clumsiness due to a compressed spinal cord.

Fortunately, John is now scheduled fo spinal surgery on March 15 to treat this condition. He needs help raising $1,500 to fund this procedure.

John says, “My prayer is to be able to walk again and in upright gait. I am really suffering due to this condition.”
