Isaack underwent a mobility-restoring fracture repair.

16-year-old Isaack underwent a successful ORIF surgery after sustaining a severe femur fracture. Isaack’s family is very pleased by the results of the surgery and Isaack’s elder brother has been extremely helpful in his recovery. Isaack explained that he had so much pain before the surgery, but now he feels much better than before.

Without the support from Watsi, Isaack’s family could not have afforded to pay any hospital fees, so they are grateful for this opportunity.  Isaack finally feels comfortable walking with the help of crutches and is looking forward to returning to school. His dream is to become an engineer, and his favorite subject in school is mathematics.

Issack shared, “I am very happy with the outcome of the surgery, I am hoping to heal soon and join my classmates.”

Isaack is a 16-year-old student in Grade 7 hailing from Elgeyo Marakwet County in Kenya.

On January 1st, 2021, Isaack sustained a severe injury to his right lower limb after he was involved in a motorbike accident on his way to church. He has a distal femur fracture, and is in great pain and cannot walk. Isaack’s mother is appealing to anyone reading her son’s story to help her raise money for a successful surgery for Isaack. Since her son’s accident, she has not been able to find stable employment and appeals for financial support.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On January 25th, Isaack will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him heal well and walk well again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,016 to fund this procedure.

Isaack shared, “My hope is to get treated so that I can return back to school as soon as possible.”
