George underwent repair of his fractured arm so he can continue with school.

George successfully underwent treatment. He recovered well after surgery and was up and about by the second day with minimal pain. Following this treatment and healing, George will be able to continue with his schooling, where he’ll be able to play again with his siblings and friends.

“You have really assisted me and am very grateful. I can only say God to reward all those that have assisted my son. I was worried about him but now I have hope that he will be okay and go back to school. I would not have done it without your help,” said George’s mother.

George is a brave boy from a village in southern Kenya. He is the third born in a family of four children. He is in pre-kindergarten and likes to play a lot. His mother does house work when available while his father does any jobs he can find. The family faces a lot of financial challenges which made it hard for them to bring George to the hospital for help.

On June 30th, George accidentally fell and fractured both the radius and ulna bones in his right hand. The surgeon found that he needs a fracture repair surgery, but George’s family cannot raise the money for it. George is in pain and cannot use his hand.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On July 7th, George will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help reduce his pain and be able to use the hand once he recovers. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $1049 to fund this procedure.

“I am desperate and have no way to help my son. I ask for help so that he can be treated, be able to use his hand, and continue with his education. I will appreciate this help,” said George’s mother.
