Shankar is a 28-year-old man from Nepal. While he was loading stones onto a truck, a large stone fell on his left leg and fractured his toe. Since then, he has been in pain and has had difficulty moving the injured foot.
Shankar visited the primary health post near his village. He was diagnosed with a fractured toe and was referred to our medical partner’s hospital, Bayalpata Hospital. To seek medical treatment, Shankar and his family drove for two hours to reach the hospital. He underwent a fracture repair procedure on December 23.
Shankar lives with his wife and children. He is a microfinance officer, and his wife works in the field and looks after their children. They need help to fund this $541 procedure.
