Dhana is a 17-year-old woman who lives with her parents and siblings in Nepal. She studies in the eighth grade. Her entire family is dependent on agriculture. When the going gets tough, her father goes to India to work as a laborer and returns when he saves just enough.
Dhana was walking on her way from her house to the field. Suddenly, there was a heavy storm, and the branch of a tree broke and fell on her, fracturing her right thigh. Since then, it has been hurting. She traveled for nine hours to reach our medical partner’s care center, Bayalpata Hospital.
On April 28, Dhana will undergo surgery to mend the fracture. Now, she and her family need assistance in paying for her $541 treatment.
“I wish my treatment happens soon to get relieved from pain,” shares Dhana.
