Eliud is a quiet boy aged 15 years from Kimende Kiambu. He is the first born in a family of three. He is in class seven going to class eight next year. Eliud is born of a single mother who is a casual laborer and works at neighbors farms and washing clothes to make ends meet.
On 21st October, Eliud fell from a ladder and sustained closed fracture humerus of the right hand. He was brought to hospital and the surgeon ordered ORIF. The income of the single mother is not sufficient to meet the cost of this treatment. If not treated, it may result in malunion and he would not be able to use his hand.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On October 31st, Eliud will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him use his hand again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.
“Eliud is my first born and my hope. I ask for your support so that he can be treated and be able to support our family,” said Eliud’s mother.
