One year ago, 13-year-old Man noticed swelling in his abdomen and was diagnosed with a hernia. Since his initial visit to a clinic in Nepal, Man did not experience much pain but in the last three months it has become difficult for him to walk.
Man tells our medical partner, Possible, that he loves to study math in his seventh grade classes and at home he “looks after cattle by cutting fodder and grazing them,” but these activities have become more difficult with his hernia.
Man’s parents work as farmers and cannot afford the cost of their son’s care, even though he is their youngest child and they try to pamper him when they can.
For $491, Man will have his hernia surgically corrected. This operation will return him to full health so that he can help around the house and attend school once again, free from pain.

Man was treated for a painful hernia.
Man is now recovering from his successful surgery and is on bed rest for two weeks. Our medical partner, Possible, shares, “Though it may be painful initially, the ideal exercise for Man is to walk. This will accelerate the process of healing. He should also be careful while working in the field, not doing any strenuous activity or lifting heavy weight.” Possible predicts that within about two months Man will be up and about with ease.
Man’s uncle says, “We’re very happy that Man’s treatment went well. His parents were very worried back home and his brothers had been crying too. These boys can finally go back home now and get some well-deserved rest.”
