“I am so glad I am getting this treatment,” Rame shares.
Rame is a 63-year-old man who lives with his wife and son in Nepal. Their family is entirely dependent on agriculture for their income. But because of his advanced age, Rame has trouble working for extended periods of time. Although Rame’s son supports him in the field, the yield from their farming covers their needs for only about three months of the year.
For this reason, Rame needs help paying for treatment of a medical issue he has been dealing with recently. About a week ago, Rame developed a hernia on the left side of his groin area. Hernias in this area of the body typically arise when the intestine bursts through a weak spot of the abdominal wall and presses into the inguinal canal, a part of the reproductive system.
Rame’s hernia makes it very painful for him to walk. Nonetheless, his discomfort eventually grew so intense that he risked the seven-hour walk to Bayalpata Hospital. There, he was told that he needs to undergo hernia repair surgery. If untreated, Rame runs the risk of developing fatal complications, such as tissue death.
That’s where you come in. For $451, we can sponsor Rame’s operation, as well as the hospital stay, medications, and lab tests that will ensure he recuperates safely. With intervention now, Rame will be able to enjoy a more physically comfortable and safe old age with his wife and son.
