Puspa is a 50-year-old farmer living in Nepal with his mother, wife, and seven children. According to our medical partner, Possible, Puspa has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This lung condition blocks airflow, making it difficult to breathe.

“It’s been about 15 years since Puspa developed breathing problems but it’s gotten particularly worse in the last four years,” Possible explains. “It’s difficult for him to do any physical activity on his own right now.”

With $270, Puspa will undergo nebulizer treatments and oxygen supplementation to restore normal airflow. He will also receive inhalers and medication to open the airways in his lungs.

During his four days at the hospital, Puspa will be under close medical supervision. Following treatment, Puspa is expected to be able to return to his daily activities, Possible says.

Looking ahead to the future, Puspa shares, “When my health gets better, I want to run a hotel business with my family.”
