Remedan underwent corrective surgery.

Remedan underwent successful PSARP on the 15th and Colostomy closure on the 19th September. He is now able to pass stool on his own and no longer at risk of infection due to a colostomy.

Remedan’s mother said, “I am short of words to explain how grateful I am for this life-changing operation. It was tough with his sickness and the colostomy. Now I am very happy. I pray for God to make my sponsors happy as they make me happy.”

Remedan is a baby from Ethiopia. He loves to play and laugh with people. He loves food.

Remedan was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. He needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction.

Remedan is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition on May 14. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Remedan’s procedure and care.

After his recovery, Remedan will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.

Fred

Fred is a motorbike delivery man from Kenya. He is the last born in a family of five. Fred recently got a job in Nairobi making deliveries using a motorbike. He has only been working for two months at his job. On average, he can make $4 a day. The single young man lives in an apartment costing $30 a month. He does not have active medical insurance coverage do to the cost. His parents are small-scale farmers who grow food crops for home-use on their half an acre piece of land in Kisii. Fred's parents rely on him for upkeep and income since not all his siblings have jobs. To save money, he had travelled to his ancestral home in Kisii (about 500 km from Nairobi) to visit his elderly parents using his work motorbike. He was involved in an accident along Maai Maihiu road while going back to Nairobi. A personal car was on the wrong side of the narrow road and unfortunately hit him. He was rushed to Kijabe Hospital as an emergency case and admitted right away. X-rays revealed that he has a midshaft fracture femur, distal fibular fracture, ulna styloid fracture, Scaphoid fracture, and fracture of his finger.. The Orthopedic team has recommended right femur and right distal tibia fracture repair surgery. He is currently unable to walk or use his right leg and arm. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On August 25th, Fred will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. He will be able to walk again and use his arm again Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to fund this procedure. Fred says, “I am young and have a life to lead, I cannot lose my leg. I recently started working with high hopes for my future and supporting my elderly parents. I also promised my brother to pay for his college fees. Sadly, I now cannot walk or use my legs”.
