James is a young man of 23 years of age. James has spent most of his life working to sustain a living. He did not go past grade four in school, as he lacked the fees to pay for school. At a young age, he began driving motorbike taxis, then later graduated to working as a casual laborer.
On May 11 of this year, James was returning home in the evening. He was attacked by men who robbed him and beat him up. The men left James alone on the road.
Coming out of this attack, James was left with a closed fracture of the radius and ulna of his left hand. The pain forced James to consult with a doctor at the hospital. The doctor advised that James have an ORIF surgery as soon as possible to prevent deformities and malunion. His surgery is scheduled for May 29.
James is completely unable to work. Thus, he cannot afford this treatment. Our medical partner is requesting $998 to help fund James’s treatment. James wishes to get better so he can continue to provide for himself and his family.
James says, “I kindly ask for support for the surgery. My parents have been unable to raise the money. I am hoping the surgery will be successful.”
