Stella is a farmer from Kenya. She plants millet and sorghum. She has five children.

Two weeks ago, Stella was crossing a stream when she slid and fell, knocking her hand on a hard surface. She is not able to use her hand and is in pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On April 5, Stella will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. She will be able to work and use her hand easily. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $771 to fund this procedure.
