Please help Mary to walk again
Please help a Kenyan Kiwi raise money for his mother's expensive knee operation, to remove her pain, and so she can walk.Nationwide
On August 22nd Mary Onyando slipped and fell, and seriously smashed her knee at her home in Fort Ternan, Kenya.
In Kenya there is no free health care for serious operations like the one Mary requires.
She had already had surgery on that arthritic knee and so this operation will be complex.
The knee was bleeding internally and her son has paid for her to go to hospital to have it stabilised.
Now all she can do is lie at home and wait, in serious pain, until NZ $6,100 is raised for her to have an operation.
She is completely incapacitated, being unable to walk. She has been told she has to fund this operation via OOPs which is the term for "out-of-pocket payments". This means she has to raise the funds.
She cannot look after herself, and her daughter was due to leave home and start university next week - also funded by her son in New Zealand.
Someone is now needed to care for Mary and the small farm that she lives on - collecting water, making meals as well as feeding livestock - until she is able to walk again.
Please can you help the family raise this money?

I am friends with Mary's son Alfred. She lives in Kenya but he is in New Zealand and I am setting this page up on his behalf to raise money for his mother's urgently needed operation.
I will transfer the money to Kenya when we have raised the money.
Use of funds
The money is entirely for Mary's knee operation.
Any money left over will be donated to 100% Charity - a Kenyan Kids Sponsorship Campaign run from New Zealand. http://www.ahundredpercentcharity.co.nz
Mary's amazing friends in Kenya have donated a NZ equivalent of one thousand dollars so that leaves us just $5,100 to raise.
I am hoping that more of my Facebook friends will support this.
Thanks heaps to those who have.
Remember this is givealittle because every little bit helps. :)
