Jackline is a nine-year-old student who does well in school and enjoys helping with household chores. Her favorite subject in school is Kiswahili. Jackline’s mother is a housewife, while her father is a casual laborer who works at construction sites.
Three years ago, Jackline was playing at home with friends when she fell and injured her left leg. She was taken to a nearby hospital where her leg was casted, but since then, she has been limping and experiences pain in her hip. She is unable to walk well or play with her friends, and the pain has affected her schooling.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Jackline to receive treatment. She visited AMH’s care center for an orthopedic consultation and is scheduled to undergo an osteotomy on July 15th. The procedure will improve Jackline’s mobility. Now, AMH is requesting $1,224 to fund Jackline’s procedure.
Jackline’s mother shared, “I would like to see my daughter walking and continue with her normal life.”
