Hannah started healing on her own, and did not need treatment.

“Treatment did not happen as Hannah started healing on her own,” says our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF).

“Hannah’s was a very moving story: having lost her mother in the accident where she was injured,” AMHF continues. “Hannah was scheduled to undergo an ORIF [open reduction and internal fixation] but was still admitted at the government hospital… the doctors at the government hospital declared that Hannah had started healing on her own (bones uniting) and was no longer in need of an ORIF.”

“Hannah was the only hope for our family. Her dream was to become a doctor so that she could help people and our family,” shares Hannah’s father. “I really hope Watsi will help her to undergo this surgery so that she can achieve her dreams.”

Hannah is a pretty 14-year-old girl from Kenya who recently finished primary school. Earlier this month, on their way to the secondary school, Hannah and her mom had a tragic accident. Hannah’s mother died instantly and Hannah sustained injuries, including a fractured femur.

Hannah is experiencing pain and is unable to walk. The surgeon at the hospital to which Hannah was admitted has recommended that Hannah undergo an open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) surgery. “If not treated, Hannah will be unable to walk. The bones may refuse to unite if treatment is delayed for too long,” explains our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF).

“Hannah’s family is still in shock following the death of their mother. The family had to prepare for the funeral as well as pay for Hannah’s hospital admission. They are therefore not in a position to pay for this important surgery,” explains AMHF.

Let’s fund this $1,125 surgery and support Hannah in attending secondary school and achieving her dream of becoming a doctor!
