Govinda is a 59-year-old man who lives with his wife and children. His family is entirely dependent on agriculture. While his wife looks after the cattle, he tends to the farm with his son. This income keeps the family fed for only four months of the entire year.
Govinda has had a painful hernia for ten years. His hernia has made it very difficult for him to walk. Recently, unable to tolerate the pain any longer, he traveled to our medical partner’s care center, Bayalpata Hospital. He is scheduled for hernia repair surgery on February 7.
Our medical partner, Possible, is requesting $451 to fund this procedure. After treatment, Govinda will be able to walk and tend to his farm without any pain.
