Three siblings are walking on foot from Ndunyu Njeru in Kinangop to Nairobi to raise money along the way for their mother’s spinal surgery.
Led by the elder sister, two two pre-teen boys began the journey on Sunday, November 8th, 2020, with nothing but a photo of their feeble mum who has been in the hospital for the last two months.
The family said the walk to Nairobi was arrived at after they failed to raise the amount needed for the spinal fusion surgery as friends and family who rushed to their rescue only managed to raise a paltry Ksh. 60,000.
The mother of 7, Mary Muthoni has been at the Kenyatta National Hospital since and needs at least Ksh. 500,000 for a titanium plate on her back.
Muthomi sustained the injuries when rocks dropped on her, leaving her with life-altering injuries while sheltering herself from the rain at a quarry.
“I’m appealing to any well-wisher, I have been at the Kenyatta National Hospital for the last two months and I cannot move, doctors say I need a spinal fusion surgery which I cannot afford,” Ms. Muthoni told Inooro TV.
