Suwas lives with his mother and siblings in Nepal. He studies in grade two at a child education center. His father works in India to support the family back home while his mother is responsible for grazing the cattle and looking after the children.
Suwas was walking down from his home to the field when he fell on a rock, fracturing his right hand and cutting the back of his head.
His mother tried to treat his fracture at home using bamboo sticks. When she noticed how Suwas still had difficulty moving his hand, she finally decided to seek medical help. They walked for eight straight hours to get to the hospital from their home.
Suwas has been in so much pain since the injury that he has been crying a lot and had to take medication to control the pain. He has difficulty moving the injured arm and there is some swelling too. He will have to do physiotherapy exercise to regain mobility after treatment.
For $541, we can fund surgery to correct the fracture, as well as physical therapy to allow him to regain a full range of motion.
“We have come from so far in hopes of getting a better treatment,” Suwas’ mother shares. “I wish my son’s treatment happens soon.”
