Marren Ojode's knee replacement

We, the family and friends of Mrs. Marren Ojode, are raising funds to pay for her upcoming double knee replacement surgery (later in April 2018). Marren (Mum) has been suffering for many years as her knees gradually (and now, more rapidly) deteriorated. She has lost all of the cartilage and much function in the knees, and this affects her daily living activities, as well as her volunteer humanitarian work in which she travels to help people in great need.  Marren must travel to India for this surgery, as it is the most cost-effective and reputable place to undergo this type of surgery (most affordable location closest to Kenya). That being said, we need to raise $17,000 between us and our support network of family and friends to cover her costs. We will continue fundraising until we meet our goal and allow Marren this critical relief she needs!  Below is an image of the surgeon who will perform her double knee replacement, based in Pune, India.  28901978_15229765120_r.jpeg
