Benson is a 25-year-old man from central Kenya. Benson is the first born in a family of three siblings. He and his father are mechanics, however their work is often quite irregular.
Benson was riding a motorbike when it was hit by a vehicle. The accident resulted in a fractured left tibia. He was brought to the hospital and advised to have surgery before his injury becomes infected or more difficult to heal.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is seeking $998 to fund an open reduction internal fixation surgery for Benson, which is scheduled to take place on June 19. This procedure will realign the fractured bone and stabilize it using hardware.
Benson hopes that the surgery will help his leg heal and that he will be able to go on working and living a normal life. Benson says, “I am so worried because I am still young. I really hope my leg will be healed and I will be able to walk again and hope to have my own family to care for one day.”
