Teriki is a 74-year-old woman with three children. She is proud that all have grown up healthy and have children of their own now. Teriki’s husband passed away many years ago, and she lives with her grandchildren. Teriki’s children farm a small piece of land and take on labor jobs to help provide for their families. Alongside farming maize and vegetables, Teriki also helps on peoples’ farms to support her grandchildren in school and provide basic needs for herself.
Teriki was recently in an accident when she had to separate some animals who were fighting on the farm. Now she has swelling and bruises, and her leg is broken. Teriki is experiencing severe pain and must use a wheelchair to move around, which has been challenging for her to do. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help Teriki heal. On May 18th, Teriki will undergo a fracture repair procedure called an open reduction and internal fixation. Upon recovery, Teriki will be able to walk easily again. AMH is requesting $1,145 to fund her medical treatment.
Teriki says, “I really feel sorry right now. I have been depending on myself, yet now I cannot walk by myself. Please help me get back on my feet so that we do not suffer more for my grandchildren.”

Teriki underwent leg surgery so she can walk again.
Teriki underwent a successful leg surgery after sustaining a fracture of her lower leg. Before the surgery, she was very anxious because she was feeling a lot of pain, she could not walk, and she was worried she might never walk again.
Teriki was already walking again using assistance of a walker the very next day after her surgery and later could walk with crutches. Our medical parter shared that she was so excited that she just kept walking around the hospital ward, not believing how quickly things had changed for her.
She is excited again for her future now that she can walk again, and is looking forward to being able to get back to performing her normal duties.
Teriki says, ”The Lord is really faithful. I thought my walking journey had ended just like that. I am really grateful for the assistance that I was provided. I may not be able to repay the kindness myself but God will do it for me.”
