January 26, 2020

Zeth is 3 year old boy who likes playing games like kick the can with his friends.

Wednesday, the 22nd of Jan, in the evening Zeth was playing with his friends when he was knocked down by one of his friends injuring his hand. Zeth was brought to our hospital crying and on his arrival, he was injected pain meds before he was sent for an x-ray which confirmed that Zeth had fractured his left elbow. Zeth was unable to lift or fold his left hand, all he could do is cry for help. He was then admitted for surgery to fix his fractured elbow.

Zeth is the firstborn child in a family of two and he has just joined kindergarten. His father is a student in a teachers’ college and his mother is a housewife. They are a young family raised from a humble background. Currently, Zeth’s mother has a nursing child so she can’t work. On the other hand, his father is in school continuing with his studies with the hope of improving his employment prospects. The young family mostly depends on Zeth’s grandparents for basic and other family needs. They also still stay with them because they can’t afford to buy a land or build a home of their own.

The family has nothing to pay for his surgery. They are requesting anyone to support them so that Zeth can receive treatment. Sharon, Zeth’s aunt says, “He has so much pain, I hope he gets treated and feels relieved.”
