James is a 50-year-old man from Kenya. Last year, he was in a road traffic accident that left him with a broken right leg. He received first aid at a local hospital but could not afford to pay for surgery. Since then, James walked on crutches and experienced severe pain in his leg. He was unable to continue working as a stone layer.

Unfortunately, James’s wife and family members have passed away. He was supported by community members who learned of his condition from the community chief.
