Two-year-old Anish lives in Nepal with his parents and siblings. His parents are farmers, and support their family through agriculture.
One day, Anish was playing on the roof of his house when he fell down. He fractured his right leg, and now it has gotten very swollen. The crack in his bone causes him a lot of pain, and Anish needs help with his basic everyday tasks like eating and bathing.
Anish was first taken to the local hospital for treatment, where doctors told his family that he needs surgery– surgery they were unable to afford. Their yield from the field only provides enough to support their family for about two months of the year. “Sometimes, I have to go to India to support my family,” shares Anish’s father.
Anish and his family took a day long walk to reach Possible for treatment. For $195, surgeons will reposition the fractured bones in his leg. Then they will use a cast to keep the bones in place while they heal.
“I am hopeful that Anish’s leg will be fixed soon,” shares Anish’s father.
