Julius received an open reduction and internal fixation surgery.

“It may take sometime before I am able to walk well, but I am so happy that now I have hope of getting well,” Julius tells us. “I can now continue to support my children: since their mother died, I am their sole provider.”

“Julius had a successful ORIF surgery,” shares our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation. “Although he was weak to ambulate (walk from place to place), he went home with crutches for more practice. The doctors expect a full recovery. Julius will be able to use his leg, work on his farm and provide for his children.”

Here’s Julius! He’s a 53-year-old male widower from Kenya with three children who are in school.

“Julius had been doing his normal work as a farmer, to tend for his children, until two weeks ago when he fell and sustained fracture of the right leg,” shares our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). “Since then, he has been experiencing a lot of pain and has been unable to move around.” If left untreated, Julius will continue to be in pain, be unable to use his leg, and may suffer from delayed healing and malunion, where the bone heals in a deformed position. His extended family cannot assist him and his income is not enough to afford this surgery.

For $1,125, AMHF will be able to provide Julius with an ORIF, or open reduction and internal fixation surgery, to fix his broken bones. With this surgery, it is expected that the bones will heal correctly and Julius will be able to use his leg again. Julius says, ‘‘I want to appreciate Watsi in advance. I hope Watsi will help me so that I can continue taking care of my children, I am their only hope!” Let’s work together to help Julius!
