Dennis underwent fracture repair surgery.

After suffering injuries on his left hand following a motorcycle accident, Dennis underwent successful surgery. After surgery, Dennis expressed the freedom he feels from all his previous worries. Dennis explained that prior to the surgery, it was difficult to lift and use his hand, however, now he is able to see the results of the surgery and the improvement in his life. Dennis is very proud to show off the movement in his fingers and is constantly admiring his hand.

“My mother could not afford to pay the hospital fees, I am really grateful for this opportunity. I am looking forward to resuming my daily duties. I also want to keep my dreams alive to become a teacher,” says Dennis.

Dennis is a talkative and inquisitive 20-year-old man. He is the second born child in a family of five children. He lives with his mother in a small village where most of the residents work on farms or do casual jobs whenever they can find them. He completed his secondary education in 2018, but his mother could not afford to send him to college. To make a living, he works on farms. Dennis dreams of being a teacher and in a position to support his mother and siblings.

In October 2021, Dennis was admitted to a local hospital after being involved in a motorcycle accident when the brakes on his bike failed. He fractured his left hand in the accident and urgently needs surgical treatment. He experiences pain in his hand and he cannot move his fingers.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), are helping Dennis receive treatment for his injury. On October 28th, he will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. The surgery will help restore normal movement in his fingers and alleviate his pain. Now, AMH is requesting $941 to fund Dennis’s procedure and care.

Dennis shared, “my hope is to get the hand treated so that I can resume my daily duties of providing for my family and my siblings, especially during this difficult time.”
