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!

Yin Yin

Yin Yin is a 27-year-old woman from Thailand. She lives with with her husband, her sister-in-law, her sister-in-law’s husband, her niece and her niece’s two small boys. Her husband, who is the only one supporting her financially, works as a cleaner at a shopping mall. In her free time, she likes to read Burmese novels. Three years ago, when Yin Yin worked as a cleaner in Bangkok, she felt tired, had no appetite, had memory loss and frequent urination. She was brought to a hospital where she was told she has a blood clot in the back of her head. She had it removed surgically, which her employer lent her money for. On December 6th and 8th, Yin Yin had two seizures. She and her husband sought treatment at Mae Tao Clinic, where she was admitted. She does not remember what happened but was given medication and told to come back if she felt unwell. On January 14th, however, she came back to the clinic, complaining of soreness in the back of her head where her first surgery took place. She also reported continued blurry vision, memory loss and fatigue. When the weather gets cold, she feels stiff and sore in her neck and hands. MTC thought she might have encephalitis but needed a CT scan to confirm her diagnosis. Unable to pay, MTC referred her to Watsi Partner Burma Children Medical Fund for assistance in accessing further treatment. Doctors want Yin Yin to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose her condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan. Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Yin Yin's CT scan and care, scheduled for January 28th. “It has been very difficult for me, but my husband gives me encouragement,” said Yin Yin.
