Rangi is a 9-year-old girl from Nepal with rheumatic heart disease. She suffers from shortness of breath and heart palpitations, especially when walking or doing any other kind of activity. She needs surgery to correct her condition and enable her to live a normal, healthy life. Rangi lives with her parents, two brothers, and two sisters. She is very bright and was admitted into a good school just a few months ago, but had to stop attending because of her poor health. Her family farms for a living, but they do not make nearly enough money to pay for the medical care Rangi needs. Rangi loves to play with her friends when she is feeling well enough and can’t wait to get treatment so she can go back to living a normal life. Let’s make it happen for her!
Nanda is a 65-year-old woman from Nepal with a fractured hip, fractured radius, vertically displaced femur, and mass in her sternum. She desperately needs surgery to repair her broken bones and enable her to lead a normal life. Without immediate treatment, Nanda’s doctors say she “will never walk again.” Nanda is a widow who lives by herself. She sustained these injuries when she fell 10 feet from a tree while gathering food for her goat, which is her only source of livelihood. There is no way Nanda can afford the medical care she needs. Let’s make sure she's taken care of and has a chance at a healthy future. Note: Nanda's case is an emergency. Nyaya Health plans to treat her within the next few days in anticipation of Watsi funding.
Janaki is a 14-year-old girl from Nepal with a hearing condition called chronic suppurative otitis media. She has suffered from this condition since she was two and a half years old. She cannot hear unless someone speaks very close to her ear. Without treatment, Janaki’s condition will likely get worse. Janaki lives with her parents and her three older brothers. She loves school but has struggled to keep up because she can’t hear what her teachers are saying. She finally quit her studies last month because of her condition. Janaki stays home most days to help with household chores because her friends make fun of her. She likes to study every subject and told her doctors that she will go back to school if she can get her hearing problem fixed. Fortunately, Janaki’s doctors identified her as a good candidate for a mastiodectomy. They tell us that this procedure will prevent any futher complications of her condition and improve her hearing enough for her to continue her education. Let’s make it happen for her!
