Jackson underwent fracture repair surgery so that he can walk again.

Jackson successfully underwent a fracture repair following his severed injuries from a road traffic accident. The surgery went well as planned and after physiotherapy and orthopaedic clearance, he has headed home. Doctors do not have further surgery planned for Jackson, but he will visit the clinic for follow up. Jackson feels relief for his future and hopes to be able to walk with ease soon.

Jackson said, “It is very hard for me since the accident got me by surprise. But now that I got help, I am happy that I received the treatment.”

Jackson is a 48-year-old married man and the father of three children. His oldest child is in high school and his youngest has not yet joined school. Jackson works as a welder, but he shared that work is hard to come by. His wife works as a teacher in a small private school.

On Monday, December 20th, Jackson was riding as a passenger on his friend’s motorbike when they were in an accident. They were going to plant some tomatoes on a farm they both owned. They arrived safely and went ahead to plant the tomatoes. When they were done, they decided to go back home and took off on Monday evening. Along the way, they were involved in an accident. Jackson was badly injured and rushed to the emergency room. Later, he was evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon where he was told he had a fractured femur and surgery is recommended. Jackson is bedridden and in pain, and he worries that without treatment, he might not be able to walk again.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help. On December 23rd, Jackson will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. After a successful surgery, he will be able to move around easily and resume his work to provide for his family. Now, Jackson needs help raising $1,500 to fund his procedure and care.

Jackson shared, “it is very hard to comprehend what happened and how I’m going to clear the hospital bill but despite the situation I’m in right now, I’m very happy that I’m receiving treatment.”
