Seven months ago, Tedi was injured while playing soccer. Though he didn’t know it at the time, he developed an infection deep in the bone of his leg. The pain and infection have gotten worse over time, and he is no longer able to go to school.

Tedi comes from a farming family, and they do not make enough money to cover the cost of a surgery and medical treatment. Bone infections require a long hospitalization and strong antibiotics. Tedi’s providers also plan to give him nutritional support to make sure that his body is strong when he leaves the hospital. The total cost of Tedi’s care will be $745.

Tedi loves going to school, and wants to get back to learning with his classmates. When he is older, he wants to be a teacher. With this treatment, his leg should be able to function again. He’ll be able to go back to school when the school year begins, and not lose too much more time from his studies.
