Monica underwent mobility-restoring ankle surgery to repair a fracture.

After suffering an injury to her left leg, Monica finally underwent a successful ORIF surgery. Monica has had a calm recovery and was discharged a week after her surgery in stable condition. Monica is pleased with the outcome of her surgery. Without the help of Watsi, Monica could not afford to pay for her surgery, and she is grateful for this opportunity.

Monica explains that before the surgery, it was difficult to lift her feet. Now, she can see the results of the operation and the improvement of her condition. Monica will soon begin her physiotherapy to bring movement back to her leg.

Monica says, “I was unable to lift my leg due to pain, but now I can. Thank you, Watsi, for helping me to be back to my normal life.”

Monica is a greengrocer from Kenya. She is a mother of four aged between three and eight. She separated with his husband and now she lives with her four children in a single room rental house. Monica depends mostly on her daily work for food and saves a little to pay bills at the end of the month. Her low socioeconomic status and her family struggles have limited her options of getting treatment.

On June 26th 2020, Monica went to the hospital because she fell on wet ground while she was heading home carrying a bundle of firewood on her back. On arrival at the hospital, an X-Ray was done which confirmed a fracture in her left ankle. She cannot walk on her own and is in a lot of pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On July 3rd, Monica will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help her heal well and be able to walk and work without pain. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $809 to fund this procedure.

Monica shared, “I want to receive treatment, get healed and continue supporting my children. I am worried about my ability to help them now that I can’t perform any of my duties at home.”
