Edward is a student from Kenya. He is the youngest in a family of four. Edward is a primary school student who aspires to become a doctor. His parents are farmers.
This month, Edward was in a motorcycle accident, and he suffered a femur fracture. He needs intramedullary nailing to correct the fracture. He complains of mild pain. If not treated, Edward risks further complications, such as malunion.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On January 24, Edward will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This treatment will help him walk on his easily own again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,451 to fund this procedure.
Edward says, “I wish to be treated. I want to become a doctor.”
