Winjoy is a happy three year old girl, who lives with her grandmother. Because Winjoy’s mother is a student, Winjoy’s grandmother supports the family by selling vegetables that she grows.
Winjoy arrived at the hospital with her left arm swollen around her elbow. Doctors determined that she had sustained a fracture, and a splint was applied to immobilize the joint. Winjoy’s grandmother was advised that Winjoy needed to be admitted to the hospital for further evaluation and surgery, but her grandmother explained that she didn’t have the necessary money for Winjoy’s hospitalization.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, has stepped in to enable Winjoy to access the care that she needs. On January 23rd, Winjoy will undergo surgery at AIC Kapsowar Hospital, to repair her fractured arm. Now Winjoy and her grandmother are appealing to you to help raise the $679 needed for the surgery, which will ensure that Winjoy’s fracture heals properly.
Winjoys’ grandmother says: “This issue is very complex to me. I am the only provider to my children and grandchildren, and it has been so hard to even pay their school fees. I have been struggling for real and when I see my granddaughter’s condition, my heart is broken more. I am not able to offer anything at the moment. Kindly help me so that she can grow normally.”
