Philaris underwent mobility-restoring tibia fracture surgery.

Our medical partner shared that young Philaris underwent a successful ORIF surgery after sustaining an injury on her right lower limb after falling while fetching firewood for her family.

Philaris is now doing well and was discharged to go home when she was stable enough and able to move around with crutches. Philaris is so happy to have undergone the surgery so that she can again be independent and return to her normal duties. Philaris will soon begin her physiotherapy treatment to bring more movement back to her leg.

Philaris shared with gratitude, “I couldn’t imagine myself being disabled at my young age and see my children suffer again. I want to take good care of them and see them happy. Thank you Watsi for your kindness.”
