Sagar was successfully treated for a painful abscess.

A few weeks ago, Sagar developed an abscess on his right foot causing him extreme pain and making it difficult for him to walk or stand.

Sagar and his family walked for five hours to reach Watsi’s medical partner, Possible, for treatment. He’s now doing very well! He is currently recovering from the the incision and drainage procedure, and his wound is healing gracefully. There is a small area which still needs daily dressing, which has been cared for and is on track to heal completely.

“I am happy that Sagar is doing so much better,” shares Sagar’s mother.

Meet Sagar, an 11-year-old boy who lives in Nepal with his parents and one sibling. He is currently in second grade at school. Sagar’s father seasonally migrates to India to work as a watchman while his mother tends to the family’s farm. The yield from the farm keeps the family going for about two months out of the year.

Sagar developed an abscess on his right foot about five days ago. Not only has it been extremely painful, but it has been swelling too. Sagar finds it difficult to stand or walk on the foot.

Sagar’s family walked for five hours to reach Watsi’s medical partner, Possible, for treatment. “It was very difficult for me to carry and bring him to this hospital,” shares his mother. “We do not have roads in the villages, only trails.”

To cure his abscess, Sagar will undergo a $157 incision and drainage procedure and will need to regularly change a hygienic dressing on the site. His family needs financial assistance to afford this simple operation that will eliminate the potentially dangerous infection.

“I will be happy if his treatment happens soon,” says Sagar’s mother.
