Hello and sorry you're having problems. When the USB charge port is damaged like this, it does at the very least require replacement of the jack, and in some cases the entire Mainboard of the Kindle. In the latter case, you can still transfer all of your books and downloaded content directly from your Amazon account onto the unit with the new Mainboard.
For repairs, Amazon does not repair these directly. Instead there are 3rd party repair services available on the web. I would suggest contacting:
Other than that, I'm sorry for the bad news here and wish there were a quick fix.
