November 12, 2018

Alex is a child from Kenya. In early November, he fell and sustained a closed fracture on his right upper arm. If not treated, Alex will continue to experience pain, and the fracture may not heal correctly.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On November 13, Alex will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. Alex will be able to use his hand again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.

“We hope the surgery will be successful,” says Alex’s mother.
