Faith is a 17-year-old student from Kenya who is in the midst of studying for her exams. Her mother works as a general worker in a shoe company, and her father is a subsistence farmer. Faith loves to read and play football.
In March 2017, Faith was in an automobile accident. She was riding a motorcycle with three schoolmates when they were hit by a passenger vehicle. She fractured her right femur. She received treatment, but the initial treatment failed and needs to be revised. If not treated, an infection could develop that could result in amputation.
Faith’s treatment will involve ORIF (open reduction internal fixation), where a screw is used to hold broken bones together. She is scheduled to be treated on October 16. Now, her family needs help raising $1,451 to pay for treatment.
Faith says, “I want to be well and lead a normal life. I want to study and pass my examinations.”
