Dinah is a farmer from Kenya. She is a mother of seven. She plants millet and sorghum for her family’s consumption.

Last month, Dinah accidentally fell from a flight of stairs and sustained injuries on her right leg. She is not able to walk without support and is experiencing severe pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 27, Dinah will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will enable her leg to heal well and she will be able to work again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.

Dinah says, “I hope I will receive treatment soon because it will be difficult for my children.”
