Thomas is an artist from Kenya. In early March, he was hit by a bus and sustained an ankle fracture. He is not able to walk and experiences pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On March 12, Thomas will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him to walk again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.

“The uncouth behavior of bus drivers may lead to my hospitalization but it will not deter me taking up my hustle from where I left after I am healed,” Thomas said.
