Plates & Screws
We are very grateful for all the individuals and churches that support our work and ministry here in Kenya. We are also thankful for the many companies that have responded for requests for equipment, instruments, disposables, etc. One company in particular that has helped us out tremendously is Synthes (www.synthes.com). They develop, produce and market instruments, implants and biomaterials for the surgical fixation, correction and regeneration of the skeleton and its soft tissues. We use there products to fixate unfavorable jaw fractures. With help from Samaritan's Purse for logistics (Scott & Mary Elizabeth) Synthes (Paul Gordon) donated two complete fracture kits of 2.0 and 2.4 mm plates and screws. This company has no direct connection or financial gain in this donation, just the desire to help out in the developing world.
We thank Synthes for their donation; and I think this Kenyan patient thanks you even more.
