Sikuku is a masonry student from Kenya. He is the fourth child in a family of six. He recently completed his secondary school studies, and he is waiting to start college.

On June 16, Sikuku was involved in a road traffic accident, in which he sustained injuries and a fracture in his right leg. He was rushed to a nearby medical facility for treatment and then referred to our medical partner’s hospital for further management. Sikuku is unable to stand or walk using his right leg.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On June 27, Sikuku will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. After surgery, he will be able to walk again, and he’ll return to school for masonry training. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure.

“I can’t wait to go to college and start working and just get my life on track. I am feeling positive about my future,” says Sikuku.
