He had blood running down his face, and it was obvious he had a broken leg.

  • I Could Not Visit Anyone

    At 48-years of age Malita Mthita has not only been unable to visit friends, she has not been able to travel 500 meters to a church assembly, or journey five kilometers to the nearest healthcare facility for much needed attention. She has been unable to leave her immediate village, and could not even enjoy a pleasant trip to the nearby market. Malita’s legs were paralyzed at birth, and as she grew there was nothing that could be done to help her walk. This left her in a near impossible state when it came to getting around.
