Sharmila is an adorable six-year-old girl living in Nepal who loves skipping and playing games! Her favorite game is “chungi,” a Nepalese version of hackey sack played with a ball of rubber bands. Sharmila lives with her grandparents, two brothers, and her parents, who farm and own a small roadside tea shop.
One day, Sharmila fell on her hand while playing outside. She experienced severe pain and has been unable to move her hand ever since. If Sharmila does not receive treatment for her fracture, she could lose complete use of her hand.
Doctors say that Sharmila “is really sad that now she will not be able to play chungi for some time.” For $805, we can fund Sharmila’s surgery for her hand fracture so she can get back to playing with her friends!
