Hemraj is 15 and studies in the secondary level. He lives with his parents and siblings.
His father works in India to support the family back home, and his mother works on the farm for their living. The yield from the field keeps them going for about three months of the year.
A year ago, Hemraj started experiencing a buildup of fluid in a sensitive area. It looked like a small fluid-filled balloon. His parents tried some herbal medicine at home, but his symptoms did not improve. Finally, the family traveled to reach our medical partner’s hub, Bayalpata Hospital.
Hemraj’s hydrocele repair surgery is scheduled for March 30. The surgery will cost $380. The family cannot afford this procedure and needs help raising the necessary funds.
Hemraj’s uncle says, “I wish for him to return to his normal life.”
