Daniel, who is 34 years old, lives with his mother in Kawaida village in rural Kenya. He works in construction trying to get jobs whenever he can, while his mother sells groceries at a nearby market. Daniel is separated from his wife and child, which he shared has left him feeling sad and incomplete.
On Sunday, July 30th, Daniel was a passenger in a Matatu (public bus), which was involved in an accident. Daniel sustained injuries to his back, right femur and his right tibia. The surgeon at the hospital where Daniel was brought told him that his back and tibia would heal over time, but the fractured femur needed to be surgically repaired.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, can help. On August 7th, Daniel will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation, at Nazareth Hospital. This procedure will ensure that Daniel’s fracture will heal properly. Now, African Mission Healthcare is requesting $1,049 to fund Daniel’s surgery.
Daniel said: “I kindly request help because I have no one to turn to. I am hoping one day I will be able to walk again with my legs.”
