Ganesh is a 20-year-old college student who lives with his parents in Nepal. Committed to helping his family financially, Ganesh works full-time at a stone factory while pursuing his bachelor’s degree in business administration.
“Ganesh was working in the stone factory when he fell from a height of six feet and ended up fracturing his right arm,” our medical partner, Possible, tells us. “The area of injury has swollen considerably, and he is in a lot of pain.”
The injury has not only impacted Ganesh’s ability to work and attend school, but it has also limited his day-to-day activities. “Ganesh has not been able to do even his basic activities like eating, getting dressed, or using the washroom on his own since the accident,” says Possible.
Treatment for Ganesh is surgery in which his broken arm “will be aligned correctly and secured with the help of a plate to ensure it heals well,” explains Possible. $579 covers the cost of surgery for Ganesh as well as the costs of four nights in the hospital, X-rays, physiotherapy, medicine to relieve pain and prevent infection, and cast removal after his arm has healed.
“I have a lot of responsibilities,” shares Ganesh. “I wish for my arm to be fixed soon so that I can go back to work once it heals.”
