Heartwarming images of woman whose hands were chopped off – PHOTOS
Jackline Mwende, the woman whose hands were chopped off by her husband, will finally get fitted with prosthetics.
Ahead of the operation that will be done on Thursday in a South Korean hospital, Ms Mwende appears to be recovering.
Exclusive photos of her that Nairobi News have from South Korea, give an indication of a woman on the path to full recovery from a traumatizing ordeal.
Ms Mwende, who was flown to Seoul, South Korea in late September, is currently admitted at Dai Han Prosthetics Labs.
Her story touched thousands of well-wishers who were willing to help but the prosthetics needed were not available locally.
During her stay in Seoul, the Kenyan community in Korea has been visiting her regularly to offer her emotional and psychological support and has even taken her out for dinner.

Shiru Thuo, a student in South Korea, told Nairobi News that Mwende seems alright and has been excited everytime she has been visited by Kenyans living in South Korea.
According to Dr Sung-Ho Lee who has been treating her, Ms Mwende will be fitted with the prosthetics on Thursday and then they will take her on a tour around Seoul on Friday or Saturday before she flies back home on Sunday.
Ms Mwende left for Korea on September 26 with her sister. The two sisters have been receiving assistance from Ms Mwende’s doctor and a lady secretary at the lab who both speak English.
