Kevin is a young man from Kenya. He is the oldest in his family, and his parents are farmers. When Kevin joined high school, he had high hopes of completing his studies and maybe joining university or college. Unfortunately, to help his family, he was forced to drop out and look for a job. Now, he works as a motorcycle taxi driver.

In June 2017, Kevin was hit by another motorcycle, fracturing his femur. He has had three surgeries to correct the fracture and requires the forth surgery: a bone transport. Right now, he is walking on crutches.

Kevin says, “I wish that soon I will be able to walk without the crutches and be able to fend for myself.”

This fourth surgery is scheduled for August 6. While the first three surgeries were paid for by the National Health Insurance Fund, he needs help raising $1,500 to fund this one.
