Thanks to Kenyan people with big hearts Gladys Kamande’s treatment, which seemed far off, is gradually becoming a reality.
A brief personal information of Gladys Kamande says she has survived several harsh ordeals but remains strong in the face of them all.
Gladys Kamande is a blind woman who has had seven miscarriages. She was assaulted and abandoned by her abusive spouse. Report says her husband callously attacked her on her 7th pregnancy. Now she is on live support machines.
Her plight moved Kenyans to support her. As at now the good people of the country have come up with over KSh7 million($68, 544) for Gladys Kamande’s treatment. The money will be used to pay for a reconstructive lung surgery for the ailing woman.
As described in his Facebook account, Ndungu Nyoro, a Facebook Goodwill Ambassador at Huduma Centre, expressed his delight and gratitude to the 16,000 Kenyan donors who have made the money available for Gladys’ surgery.
Inclusive of the donors are Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko and Dennis Itumbi.
He further revealed that the street boy who broke down after meeting Gladys equally has good news. Ndungu says that the young boy now has a sponsor who will take up the cost of his high school education.
The young man had come to beg for money from the car conveying Gladys and her relatives to the hospital. On beholding her situation, the boy wept uncontrollably. He abandoned his plea for money and food and said a prayer for Gladys while holding her hand.
Overwhelmed with the magnanimous response to her request for help, Gladys Kamande is grateful for the financial support from well wishers.
With a lung reconstructive surgery, she would be able to breathe on her own without the dependence of life support machines like she has been doing for over 7 years now.
