Umesh is an eighteen-year-old from Nepal who lives with his parents and siblings. His father runs a shop in the village and he supports his father in his work. His mother is responsible for grazing the cattle and looking after their farm.
It was a dark night when Umesh was walking down a flight of stairs. Suddenly, he tripped and fell on the ground, fracturing his left hand. He has been in so much pain since then, and had to take medication to control the pain. He has difficulty moving the injured hand and there is some swelling too.
Umesh’s family hired a jeep and took five hours to visit Bayalpata hospital, where Umesh will be fitted with a cast. After treatment, Umesh will have to do physiotherapy exercises to regain mobility of his hand.
“I would be happy if I get relieved from pain,” shares Umesh.
