Costine is a young student from Kenya. His mother is a housewife, and his father is a farmer.
In May, Costine was herding their cattle when he slid and sustained a severe hip fracture. He was rushed to the nearest hospital for first aid and later referred to our medical partner’s hospital. He cannot lift or touch anything with his right hand and has not been attending school.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On May 17, Costine will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. Costine will be able to use his hand and help out his parents at home and he will be able to go back to school. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $771 to fund this procedure.
Costine says, “I miss my friends at school, I want to get treated so that I can rejoin my friends at school.”
