Clement underwent fracture surgery so he can walk and work again to support his family.

58-year-old Clement was in an accident that resulted in a severe injury. He had a successful surgery and is on track to recovery. Clement was discharged home from the hospital with medication and is excited to get back to his day job. His family is thankful because they would have been unable to afford expensive surgical costs on their own.

Clement is currently ambulating with the help of crutches. He’s in good spirits, and mostly is looking forward to recovering and being able to walk well again.

Clement had a long stay in the hospital ward and it was hard for him to stay in bed so long without getting up and out. But he is so happy that he can now enjoy freedom once again. He shared, “I want to walk again, be independent, and return to all my normal duties of farming.”

Clement is a small-scale farmer from Kenya. He was born and raised in a small village called Bugar where most of the people living in the area are farmers or find other casual jobs. He is married and has six children: two girls, and four boys. He did not attend school and communicates only in his mother tongue, called Keiyo. His family lives in a small mud house with a thatched roof and grows their food from their small farm, which mostly consists of maize and beans.

Last week, Clement sustained a severe injury on his right leg after he was involved in a road traffic accident while going to the market. He was a passenger on a motorcycle that lost control and fell into a ditch leaving him and the rider with severe injuries. They were rushed to a nearby hospital where they received first aid and were later referred to our medical partner’s care center for treatment.

An X-ray revealed an open right tibia fibula fracture. Quickly Clement was rushed to the operating theatre for surgical debridement of wounds and casting. He was admitted to the hospital and is awaiting fracture surgery. He is unable to walk and is in great pain.

Clement likes spending his days on his farm and as the breadwinner of the family, he’s now feeling distressed because he can’t provide for them due to his condition. He is worried about the obstacles his family would face if his leg is not treated, having also been diagnosed with arthritis. The family doesn’t have funds to pay for his surgery and he’s appealing for support.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On January 6th, Clement will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will reduce his pain and help him walk easily again. After complete recovery, he will be able to resume his work and support his family. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,145 to fund his treatment to help him heal.

Clement says, “I want to be pain-free and healthy. I hope to be happy again and have a good life. My family needs me the most.”
