Kipkorir is a loving grandfather who lives in the highland parts of Kenya with his wife and two grandchildren. He has seven children who are small-scale farmers, and they work hard to provide for their parents.
Kipkorir fell at home about a month ago and has been unable to walk. He sought medical treatment and an x-ray showed that he had sustained a fracture of his right neck of femur, the part of the thigh bone just below the ball of the hip joint.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner African Mission Healthcare (AMH) can help. On September 11th, Kipkorir will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help him restore healthy hip function and regain his mobility. AMH is requesting $1,247 to fund this procedure, which would enable Kipkorir to live as before and be self-dependent.
Kipkorir says, “I am unable to walk and I feel so bad when I see my grandchildren doing everything for me. Help me please so that I may be able to get out of this trouble and relieve the people who have helped since I got injured.”
