Felix underwent a fracture repair surgery and can use his arm again.

Felix had successful surgery with our medical partner and has already headed back home happy! He can now grow up without the risk of further issues and continue to enjoy playing with other children.

Radiating relief and hope, Felix’s grandmother shared, “To see my grandson go through the operation successfully has made me very happy. I am confident once healing takes place, he will be free to play with friends and get back to his normal life. Only God can see my gratitude, I pray that you may all be blessed.”

Felix is a grade four student who lives with his grandmother. His elderly grandmother, who is a small scale farmer, takes care of him and his younger sibling, because their mother was not able to.

On July 24th, when Felix was playing, he fell and caused a fracture on his right hand, so that he is now unable to move it. Felix was brought to our medical partner’s care center by his grandmother. Fortunately, the surgeons there can help. On August 2nd, Felix will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,049 to fund this procedure.

Felix’s grandmother said, “I love my grandchildren even if their mother left them. I want to see them happy and growing like other children. I kindly ask for help and hope his surgery will go well.”
