Cynthia is in her mid-30s who hails from Elgeyo Marakwet County in Kenya. Cynthia is a single mother with two children aged 13 and 5 years. She earns wages from laundry labour in the village to provide for her family. Cynthia and her 2 children live in a one-roomed rented house.

On Thursday 21st January, Cynthia sustained a severe injury to her right lower limb after she fell down. She was rushed to a nearby facility by Good Samaritan where an x-ray was done and revealed that she had multiple fractures in her right leg. It is difficult for her to walk, and she is in chronic pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On February 4th, Cynthia 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 $1,016 to fund this procedure.

Cynthia says: “My hope is to get treated so that I can resume back to my job in order to provide for my children.”
