Boaz underwent fracture repair surgery so he can use his hand again.

Boaz, who had an open fracture on his hand, had a successful repair surgery. He is now home and recovering well. He could not hide his smile since he already felt a lot of improvement and had no more pain. His education is set to continue once his hand heals!

Boaz says, “I had a lot of pain and my hand was getting infected. I did know when it would heal since my mother could not afford to take me to the hospital. Thank you so much for helping me.”

Meet Boaz, a 5th-grade student and the middle child in his family of three. His mother is a farmer, growing maize and beans to provide income for their family’s needs.

Boaz was involved in a car accident that injured his right hand. He was initially treated at a local clinic, where he received a cast. However, his condition worsened, so Boaz visited Kapsowar Hospital, our medical partner’s facility, for further review. Doctors performed an X-ray, which revealed a fracture in his right radius and ulna - the bones in his forearm. Boaz’s wound was also infected, so he received treatment and antibiotics to help heal. Currently, Boaz cannot use his right hand, and he is in severe pain and unable to sleep well.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help. On May 10th, Boaz will undergo a fracture repair procedure called an open reduction and internal fixation. Upon recovery, Boaz will be able to use his hand, allowing him to participate in school and help out at home again AMH is requesting $1,145 to fund this procedure. Boaz’s family was also able to gather $100 to contribute to his care.

Boaz’s mother shared, “I feel like carrying this burden for him. He has so much pain. My hope is to see my son well again and be in good spirits.”
