Deepak received a cast for his broken arm.

Here’s what his doctors had to say about his progress so far:

“His pain has been relieved. He will be able to go to school, play with his friends and help his family in the household chores. It wil still be sometime before he will regain his full range of movement. But his treatment was a success!”

“The treatment saved us from having to sell our cattle to take him to India,” says Deepak’s mother.

Ten-year-old Deepak lives in Nepal and has a double fracture in his arm from falling over and landing heavily on his hands. He is experiencing constant pain and he can’t move his swollen hand. Because of his injury he can’t go to school. Deepak enjoys studying, he is in class 6 and loves English.

Deepak lives with his parents and five siblings. They have a very small plot of land, which just about feeds the family for four months a year. To earn enough to support the family, Deepak’s father goes to India to work and his mother works as a tailor, sewing clothes. Everyone works hard to make ends meet.

Deepak needs $205 for a proper cast on his arm to reduce his constant pain and ensure that his bones heal properly. As soon as the cast is on he can go back to school. However, the family can’t afford the treatment without going into debt. Let’s support them and get Deepak the care he needs for his broken arm!

Peter

Peter is a 42-year-old father who lives in Kenya but hails from the neighboring country Uganda. With no formal education, Peter works as a casual laborer, mostly working in people's farms to meet his daily needs. He is a father of three children, aged between 4 to 13 years old. He lives with his family here in Kenya in a rented single room in Chesoi village. Peter works hard but shared that his family struggles financially. None of his children are able to attend school, and his eldest son always accompanies him to the farm to help his father meet the needs of his younger siblings during these difficult times. On September 21st, Peter presented to the hospital late at night with complaints of abdominal pain and left inguino-scrotal swelling. Initially, the swelling was improving but has since worsened, becoming very painful. When Peter arrived at the hospital, he was walking in a stooping posture due to abdominal pain he has. An ultrasound confirmed irreducible inguinal hernia and was told that he needed to undergo an urgent herniorrhaphy. Because he had no money for the surgery, Peter considered postponing this urgent surgery, which doctors told him would be a dangerous move. Fortunately, the hospital enrolled him with Watsi and he slept at the hospital awaiting his treatment. On September 22nd, he'll undergo his much-needed surgery. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMH), is requesting $631 to fund Peter's surgery. Peter says, “My hope is to get treated. I want to be well and continue supporting my family.”
