Edward underwent fracture repair surgery.

Edward had successful ORIF (fracture repair) and had good recovery post-surgery. He’ll soon be able to use his right hand, which he is especially happy about because he has to go back to school and he is right-handed. Once he fully heals, Edward is also excited that he can continue playing with his friends as he used to do. The brothers were very happy for his support!

“The dilemma and uncertainty we had before is now over. I can’t wait to see my brother able to go to school and enjoying time with his friends. We are very grateful for this help and may God bless those who assisted our brother,” Edwards’ brother said while almost in tears.

Edward is a 10-year-old student and a bright boy who loves to play. He’s the third child of four in his family.

On April 13th, Edward was out playing with his friends. He climbed a tree and unfortunately, he fell and fractured his right hand. He was brought to a local hospital and the surgeon recommended surgery to make sure he heals. If not treated, Edward may not be able to use his hand.

Fortunately, surgeons at African Mission Healthcare (AMH) can help. On April 29th, Edward will undergo a fracture repair procedure called an open reduction and internal fixation. After surgery, Edward will be able to use his hand and resume his normal daily activities. Now, AMH is requesting $1,049 to fund this procedure.

Edward’s brother shared, “we don’t want our brother to have a deformity of the hand. Unfortunately, we can’t afford to pay for his surgery as we do casual jobs for our daily meals. Please help us so that Edward can be well before the schools open.”
