Jashuda is unfortunately not going to receive the treatment you funded, so we've just sent you a gift card in the amount of your donation.

We have an important update on Jashuda’s surgery. It did not happen because she became pregnant, and her surgeon recommended she postpone her surgery until after she gives birth to her child.

We are committed to transparently reporting all patient outcomes to you. Because Jashuda is postponing the treatment you funded, it’s important to us that you decide where your money goes next.

We’ve just emailed you a Watsi gift card for the same amount as your donation to Jashuda. We’d love for you to use this gift card to support another Watsi patient of your choice. But if you do not want to reallocate your donation to another patient, we’ll gladly refund your contribution.

Thanks again for supporting Watsi patients, we can’t tell you how much we appreciate it.

Jashuda is 32 and lives in Nepal with her husband, six children, and grandmother. She runs a small tea and snack shop, and also helps her family with farming.

Three years ago, Jashuda had an accident that left a painful keloid scar on her hand. Although the keloid is benign, it causes Jashuda great discomfort and needs to be removed.

Surgery for the excision costs $1,415. Following recovery, Jashuda’s pain will decrease, making it easier for her to run her shop and live a normal life!

Ian

Ian is a caring seven year old and is the second born in a family of two boys. Ian and his brother are under the care of their grandmother, because their mother has left the family, while their father sustained brain damage after a motorcycle accident, leaving him unable to provide for his children. Ian's grandmother works at a hospital, while his grandfather is a farmer. Ian discovered his condition with the help of his elder brother, and as the result of the new system of education in Kenya, where children are taught how to examine and better understand their bodies. After telling their grandmother, she brought Ian to the local hospital, where he was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, or undescended testicles. The doctor recommended an orchidopexy, to treat Ian's condition. If Ian does not undergo this procedure, he will live with an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future. Ian's grandmother is not in a position to fund his treatment, and therefore, she requests your support. Thanks to the assistance of our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, Ian is scheduled for surgery on September 19th, at Nazareth Hospital. African Mission Healthcare Foundation is seeking $483 to cover the cost of Ian's surgery and care. Ian’s grandmother says: “These are my grandchildren and I love them. I plead for help so that Ian can get treatment and be able to grow in a normal way like other boys.”
