Joseph underwent fracture repair surgery.

Joseph had successful surgery and is recovering well. He has already started walking using crutches, and soon he will be able to walk using his legs.

His mother says, “Surely God is merciful and wonderful. I can’t imagine my son walking again with his two legs. Thanks to Watsi and the hospital.”

Joseph is a young man from Kenya. He is the first born in a family of four children. He works odd jobs because his parents cannot afford to send him to college.

Earlier this month, Joseph was riding a motorcycle when he was hit by a vehicle and sustained bruises on his face and a fracture of his right femur. He is not able to walk and is in a lot of pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On June 28, Joseph will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him walk easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.

His mother says, “God always knows when we have reached our end and He comes in to help. I am very happy to know that my son will be well again. He is my first born and we have a lot of hope in him.”
