Jackson is a 30-year-old man from Kenya. He used to work on a construction site, and he used his savings to pay his sister’s school fees. Unfortunately, a road accident in 2014 left Jackson with fractures in his right tibia.

After the accident, Jackson underwent two surgeries. Unfortunately, he could not afford the additional surgery required to complete his treatment. Since then, he has been walking on crutches.

Fortunately, Jackson was referred to our medical partner’s hospital, AIC Kijabe Hospital. On December 7, he underwent a bone transport procedure. This surgery will allow him to use his leg and will prevent severe infection. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, has requested $1,500 to fund his healthcare.

“I want to be able to walk again and provide for my sister,” says Jackson.
