Grace's treatment was fully funded on February 17, 2013.

Grace is an entrepreneurial woman who dreams of running her own small business. She has done everything from day labor to running a banana stand, but what she really wants is to invest in better, more productive farming to sustain her family.

Before Grace jumps into her next business venture, however, she needs to arrange for a safe delivery for her baby. Grace is pregnant and due around April 1st. She lives close to the Lwala Community Hospital, and for $205 we can completely cover the cost of her baby’s safe birth.

Grace is thrilled for the opportunity to know simple things about her pregnancy, such as the position of the baby, warning signs to be on the lookout for, and easy ways to prepare for the baby’s arrival. Grace already experienced a bladder infection as a complication of her pregnancy, and will be relieved to know that she can always seek medical attention at Lwala’s Community Hospital in similar situations.

Bernard

Bernard is a father of four from Kenya who came to our facility with a left knee injury he sustained after falling on a rock, a few days ago. Unable to raise funds required, he could not come for orthopaedic review. A week later, Bernard received support from his brother who paid for his transportation to our hospital. He had x-ray imaging done and diagnosed with closed knee fracture of his left patella. He walks in pain and his knee is swollen. Bernard operates a tractor after missing out on studies due to financial constraints. His monthly income is quite negligible to meet the cost of surgery. His wife sells at a grocery shop in the local market to provide for their our children. With the fracture, Bernard is not able to provide for his family. They appeal for help. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On January 22nd, Bernard will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. The surgery will reduce chances of further complications on the fracture and allow him to walk with ease. Bernard was able to contribute $50 toward his treatment, but does not have the funds for the full treatment. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $771 to fund this procedure. Bernard says, “I want to get treated so that I can go out to provide for my family. There is no one to help them now when I am injured. I am looking forward to stepping on my feet again.”
