Meet Durga, a caring 45-year-old woman in need of medical care. She lives with her 15-year-old granddaughter in Nepal, while her husband and three sons live in India. She and her granddaughter look after a small field, which only yields enough for six months of the year.

Recently, Durga stumbled on a stone while carrying water from the well to her home. Unfortunately, she fractured her right knee, making it extremely difficult to move. Despite her own physical injury, Durga told our medical partner that her main concerns are about her granddaughter’s annual exams coming up in school. Durga doesn’t want her granddaughter worrying about her health while she is busy studying.

For $1040 we can cover the cost of surgery to correct Durga’s knee. Let’s come together and help this selfless woman be mobile again!
