Charity underwent a fracture repair procedure.

Charity had a successful fracture treatment and recovered well postoperatively. She finally went home feeling stronger and able to walk using crutches. The medical team advised her on good nutritional habits to regain healthy blood levels.

As she heals, Charity will be able to use her leg again and also be able to resume her small business to support her family.

“Though I felt weak I am very grateful for the support on my surgery. It could have been very painful if I was to wait a long time for health insurance. I am now confident as soon as my leg heals, I will be up and about doing my job and caring for my family,” said Charity.

Charity is a vegetable vendor from Kenya. She is married and a mother of three children who are all in school. Charity sells vegetables while her husband is a hawker. The income they get is only sufficient to meet their basic family needs.

On the evening of January 11th 2022, Charity accidentally slipped and fell in her house. She sustained a fracture of the left femur which was then confirmed by an X-ray. She is in pain and unable to walk, and therefore not able to carry on with her normal activities.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner’s care center can help. On January 18th, Charity will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. The procedure will help her walk, work, and take care of her family again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $998 to fund this procedure.

“I am used to doing my own work and this accident has really affected my life. Our NHIF (National Health Insurance Fund) card has an issue and they can only help me after 28days, which I cannot bear to wait before being treated. I kindly request for help so that I can be well again to continue with my responsibilities” said Charity.
