Maureen is a cheerful 10-year-old student. She’s the third born child in a family of four children. Both of her parents work on farms around their home.
Earlier this year, Maureen fractured her right femur. She underwent surgery to treat the fracture and the injury healed well. However, on December 5th, Maureen fell and unfortunately fractured the same leg. She was admitted to the hospital where another surgery was recommended to help her heal fully. The fracture causes Maureen pain and she is unable to walk.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help. On December 23rd, Maureen will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will help heal her fracture so that she can walk well again. Now, Maureen and her family need help raising $1,049 to fund her procedure and care.
Maureen shared, “I hope to get better and go back to school. Please help me.”

Maureen underwent fracture repair surgery so that she can walk again.
Our medical partner just shared an update that Maureen had a fracture plating procedure that was successful. She’s recovered well post-surgery and was able to start walking using a walking frame on the second day after surgery. As her fracture heals Maureen will transition from a walking frame to crutches, and then one crutch. Eventually, when the fracture is completely healed she will walk as she used to, which she is very much looking forward to. Maureen hopes to be able to enjoy playing and going to school just like her friends.
Maureen says, “I am happy I am finally going home. Thank you for helping me.”
