Susan underwent mobility-restoring ankle surgery to repair a fracture.

Following a review by the orthopedic team, Susan underwent Right Ankle ORIF (Bimalleolar) surgery on the 3rd of July to help her get back on her feet again. According to the team’s feedback, the operation was an astounding success, and hopefully, she will be able to walk and work soon. Susan is thankful for the support.

“Given my financial situation, I didn’t have hopes of getting any treatment anywhere. I am glad I got assistance and hope that soon I will be able to help my husband with farm work and feed my family,” Susan said.

Susan is married and blessed with five children, they all live together on their small-scale farm. She is entirely reliant on her farm produce for income. In her previous hospital admission, the family exhausted all of their savings and had to hold a funding drive to help pay for the bill.

Early in June, as Suzan was walking down a staircase she fell and injured her right ankle. She was rushed to a dispensary where first aid was administered and she was referred to their district hospital where an x-ray was done and a cast was placed. She was admitted for two weeks without any review by the doctor. So, she requested a discharge and came to our facility because she is not able to walk and is still in pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On July 3rd, Susan will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This is procedure will help her walk easily again and no longer be in pain. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to fund this procedure.

“I will be happy to be able to help my husband with farm work,” Susan shared.
