Liana underwent fracture repair surgery.

Liana had a successful fracture repair procedure and she recovered well post-surgery. By the time she went home with her mother, Liana was already relieved from the severe pain she used to experience before treatment and was very happy. Liana will soon be able to use her hand again after she is fully healed. Liana can now continue to grow and develop like other children and continue with her schooling.

Liana’s mother was very happy with all the services at the hospital, as she had stayed with her daughter. She shared, “I’m very pleased for the support and to see my daughter treated and in less pain. I appreciate all those that have assisted us. May God bless you all!”

Liana is a six-year-old girl and the youngest in a family of three children. She’s in grade one and likes to play a lot with friends. Liana’s mother hawks food for a living, while her father works in construction sites.

On March 13th, as Liana played with her friends, she fell and sustained an open fracture on her left hand. She was brought to a local hospital and an x-ray was performed to confirm the diagnosis. If left untreated, Liana will continue to experience pain and she may have complications.

Liana visited the hospital accompanied by her mother, who was worried about the cost of the surgery. The doctor suggested the possibility of Watsi support.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help. On March 18th, Liana will undergo a fracture repair procedure called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will allow Liana to use her hand again and she will no longer be in pain. Now, AMH is requesting $1,049 to fund this procedure.

Liana’s mother shared, “we are not sleeping because of Liana’s pain. I pray that we may be helped so that she can be relieved of pain, be well again to continue her normal life, and continue with her studies.”
