Isaac is a 32-year-old man from Kenya. He is married and his wife works at a saloon, while Isaac often works as a truck driver when he can find work. The couple has two children.

Last week, Isaac visited a petrol station to fill his tires with air. Unfortunately, one of the wheels burst and the rim hit his leg, fracturing bones in his right leg and injuring his right hand. He is now in pain and unable to walk due to the fracture.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help. On March 2nd, Isaac will undergo a fracture repair procedure called an open reduction and internal fixation. After recovery, he will be able to walk well. Now, he needs help raising $1,049 to fund his procedure and care.

Isaac shared, “the pain I am having is too much to bear. I kindly requested assistance so that I could see my leg whole again. I also need this leg to be well so that I can go back and work to sustain my family.”
