Dennis underwent a fracture surgery to heal his right leg.

This successful treatment made Dennis very happy! His surgery was successful, and he recovered well post-operatively. As healing takes place, Dennis will be able to use his leg again and restart his small business. His young family is leaning on him; he now has hope of performing his role again as the breadwinner.

With a smile and hope in his eyes, Dennis was very optimistic as he said, “My desperation has turned into hope. At least I now know soon my leg will be ok and I will start my business again. I am very grateful for this sponsorship and pray that all who supported me may never lack anything.”

Dennis is a handsome young man aged 28 years old from a village in Kenya. He is married and has two children, ages 8 and 1. Dennis is the bread winner of his young family. He operates a small business selling chicken meat. He is very social and friendly.

Recently, as he was going home, he was hit by a hit-and-run motorbike which had lost control. He was injured on the right leg and was taken to the hospital. Now he is not able to walk on his own and is in a lot of pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On October 4th, Dennis will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. After he heals, he will be able to walk again on his own. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1049 to fund this procedure so he can get back to his life and supporting his family.

“I am very disappointed because I have a very young family and they all depend on me. I hope I can get help and fast treatment so that soon I can be on my foot again, to restart my small business and earn for my family,” said Dennis.

Joseph

Joseph is a young boy from Uganda. He is the second born in a family of two children. His father is a boda boda taxi driver who transports luggage in and outside of their village for a living while his mother offers casual labor in one of the factories near their home. They rent a single room for shelter. His elder sibling is six years old and in top junior class and Joseph is in preschool class. Their home is a walking distance from our medical partner's care center Rushoroza Hospital. For one month, Joseph has had a left inguinal hernia. He developed a small on and off inguinal swelling that was painless. He is very playful and therefore it normally appears when he plays for a while. Currently, the swelling has increased in size and his father believes that his condition will continue to worsen if not treated. His family came to Rushoroza Hospital and after examination, the doctor recommended surgery, which the parents cannot afford. Fortunately, on January 10th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner's care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $170 to fund Joseph's surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. Joseph's father says, “My son is not well and feels uncomfortable when the swelling appears. I believe he will live a normal life after surgery so that he may be able to take on his studies comfortably.”
