Sivutha is a 61-year-old egg seller with has five children (two sons and three daughters) and five grandchildren. All of his children are married except for his youngest daughter. Sivutha’s wife is also a seller at their local market.
In November, Sivutha fractured his right tibia in a motor vehicle accident. He received care at the government hospital but could not pay for follow-up treatment or medication. Now, his wound has split at the metal plate and is infected. As a result, Sivutha experiences pain and has difficulty walking.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help. On December 7th, Sivutha will undergo a fracture repair procedure. Surgeons will perform a debridement and implant antibiotic beads to speed up healing. This procedure will help him walk easily again and heal the infection. CSC is requesting $465 to fund Sivutha’s surgery.
Sivutha shared that he hopes his wound will heal and he will walk easily again.
