Kobilo underwent fracture repair surgery.

Kobilo is on track for a full recovery and she is excited to admire the final results of the surgery. She has no more pain and she can walk with the help of crutches.

Peter, a family member, says, “We are thankful for the free surgery because we would be unable to afford expensive surgical cost at other hospitals.”

Kobilo is a farmer from Kenya. She has five children. As a farmer, she plants millet and sorghum for her family’s consumption.

This month, Kobilo was involved in a road traffic accident while she was crossing the road. She lost consciousness for hours, and she was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. Kobilo sustained a severe tibia fibula fracture. She is now unable to walk or stand using her right leg.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On January 23, Kobilo will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help her walk easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.

Kobilo says, “I want to be able to walk, sit, and even feed by myself like any other person.”
