Talaa is a farmer from Kenya. She is a mother of 11. She lost her husband in 2005 due to hypertension. Talaa lives with her grandchildren. She is a happy grandmother and spends her time in the evenings educating her grandchildren. She takes care of her goats and cultivates a small piece of millet farm to keep herself busy.
Talaa fell last week while she was taking care of her goats. She landed on a stone and fractured her hip. Talaa is in a lot of pain, and she cannot stand or walk.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On January 16, Talaa will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. The procedure will help her live without pain, walk, and stand. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.
“My mum has a lot of pain, she cannot stand nor even sit comfortably. You can see that she is stressed,” says her son.
