James underwent fracture repair surgery.

James had successful treatment and his family is feeling relieved and excited.

Once healing takes place, James will stop needing to depend on his mother and will be able to go back to working. This will enable him to support to his children, who fully depend on him.

With a bold smile, James said, “It is good that our neighbor directed us here where we received this kind gift. I am very happy and pray that God may bless all of you. I now have confidence that soon my leg will be healed and I can start hustling for my family.”

James is a hardworking man coming from the outskirts of Nairobi and is a father of two daughters, one in college and the other having completed high school recently. He is separated from his wife and takes up casual labour to make ends meet. He is a jovial man.

In August, James was involved in an accident when a motorcycle hit him as he walked on a footpath. The motorcycle driver escaped leaving him in pain. He was taken to a local hospital for first aid and then to a district hospital. He had an x-ray done but was only given pain medication and advised to wait for the bone to heal on its own. However, James’ mother decided to bring him to Nazareth hospital. His leg is painful and swollen and he is not able to walk at all. James was recommended to undergo an ORIF surgery to repair the fracture.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On August 30th, James will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. The surgery will allow the fractured bone to heal with ease allowing him to walk easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,049 to fund this procedure.

James says, “I am glad there is hope for my leg to be treated so that I can go back to my normal life.”
