Kipkeu is an elderly man from Kenya. He is a widower. He lives alone but receives help from his sons and neighbors. His sons are farmers.
One evening in July, Kipkeu was heading home after meeting his friends. On his way home, Kipkeu fell and broke his right leg. He came to our medical partner’s care center, where doctors diagnosed him with a right intertrochanteric fracture. He cannot currently stand or walk.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On July 26, Kipkeu will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. He will be able to stand and walk easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $771 to fund this procedure.
“My hope and prayer is to get treated, I am going through a lot of pain. I have sleepless nights,” says Kipkeu.
