Rashid to fix a bone fracture.

Rashid had successful treatment and was very happy as he went home. As soon as the healing takes place Rashid will be able to start his casual jobs and earn a living for himself and his family at home.

“Can I come and you give me a job here in the Hospital when I get well?” These were the surprising words Rashid asked me when he was discharged. He was so excited and optimistic that soon he will be able to work again and not depend on friends.

Rashid is a casual laborer from Kenya. He is the first born in a family of three. Rashid comes from a very poor family from Western Kenya, and came to Central Kenya (Limuru) to try and find a living. He has never been to school and so he searches for any casual work available especially in construction sites.

About three months ago, when he was up a building he slipped and fell from the third floor of a building they were constructing and sustained fracture of the left humerus and a sprain on the back bone. He is unable to work or use his left hand.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 4th, Rashid will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help his hand heal well and he will be able to work again Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.
