Shanta is a bright young woman, 17 years of age, from Nepal. Shanta is currently studying in the ninth grade and aspiring to take her School Leaving Certificate exams within the next year.

Recently, while collecting firewood for her mother, Shanta fell down from a tree and fractured her hip. She hasn’t been able to walk since the accident, making it difficult to continue her studies.

For $1,240, our medical partners can treat Shanta’s fracture and get her back on her feet! Not only do Shanta’s father and brother both work in India in order to support their family, Shanta also helps by working in the field with her mother and sister. Let’s help to ensure Shanta has a bright and successful future by raising the money needed for her treatment!
