Birendra is unfortunately not going to receive the treatment you funded, so we've just sent you a gift card in the amount of your donation.

Birendra was scheduled to have surgery to heal burned skin on his head, but the surgery had to be postponed for medical reasons.

We are committed to transparently reporting all patient outcomes to you. Because your donation to Birendra isn’t going to him anymore, it’s important to us that you decide where your money goes next.

We’ve just emailed you a Watsi gift card for the same amount as your donation to Birendra. We’d love for you to use this gift card to support another Watsi patient of your choice. But if you do not want to reallocate your donation to another patient, we’ll gladly refund your contribution.

Thanks again for supporting Watsi patients, we can’t tell you how much we appreciate it.

Birendra is a sweet nine-year-old boy from Nepal. He fell into a pot of hot oil when he was just a year old, sustaining serious burns on his head.

The burns were never properly treated. Now, the resulting scar tissue is preventing the skin on his head from fully healing, and his hair from growing.

Birendra is in fourth grade and lives with his mother, grandmother, siblings, and uncle’s family. As is common in Nepal, his father works in India and sends money home. Birendra is well loved - his grandmother confided in our medical partner that he is her favorite grandson!

For $1,415, we can pay for surgery that will repair the skin on Birendra’s head and allow him to move past this childhood accident.
