Samuel underwent fracture repair surgery so he can walk and work again.

Samuel underwent a successful surgery for his left ankle fracture that was compromising his mobility after being involved in an accident. He successfully underwent an ankle ORIF surgery to help him with the recovery and enable him to walk again well. Currently, he is walking again using crutches, with hopes for a full recovery. He was discharged home after a physiotherapy review to show him exercises he can continue to do to help his healing.

Samuel says, “The pain has reduced and I have hopes of walking again. I know soon I will be able to use my legs again.”

Samuel is a 25-year-old motorbike taxi driver from Kenya. His father is a carpenter and his mother runs a greengrocery in their hometown.

On May 8th, Samuel was in a traffic accident that caused a serious fracture to his left ankle. Samuel is unable to walk on his own and is currently using crutches.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help. On June 8th, Samuel will undergo a fracture repair procedure called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him walk easily again. Now, AMH is requesting $1,500 to fund this procedure.

Samuel shared, “I am in pain and cannot walk without the help of the crutches. The doctor said if I don’t get the surgery my leg will not be okay and can’t work.”
