Sebastian, father of sponsored child Zakayo at our Mikinduri Site, is in desperate need of medical attention.
He is a 75-year-old father of six children and has three grandchildren who were left in his care.
Sebastian suffered a burn injury to his right leg two years ago while working at one of his casual labour jobs. Due to the lack of proper medical attention, the condition of his leg has deteriorated to the point of being life threatening. He now requires immediate medical attention and will most likely need to have his right leg amputated.
In addition to caring for the needs of her sick husband, their children and grandchildren, Sebastian's wife has taken on the responsibility of supporting the family as a casual labourer in the neighbourhood when work is available.
Life has always been challenging for this family; even more so now that Sebastian is unable to provide for the needs of his family. The familly is homeless and lives on their relative's land where Sebastian was given permission to build a single-room house that is in very poor condition. None of his extended family is in a position to help him with his medical expenses.
Our Mikinduri Sponsor Site director has requested financial assistance for this family. $4,092.14 is required to cover the medical treatment required to save his life, food for the family, and wheelchair for Sebastian.
Funding Request: $4,092.14
Critical Need: KMS0819
Please note that any donations that exceed the request will be used to fund other critical need emergencies that may arise.
