Lakshmi received surgery to remove a severely infected finger.

With her finger amputated, Lakshmi is no longer at risk of the infection spreading. When her cast is removed, she will have full use of her left once again.

Lakshmi’s brother-in-law, who traveled with her to the health facility, told our medical partner in Nepal: “We are lucky to get this care. Thank you for the help!”

Lakshmi lives up to her name, which means Goddess. She tirelessly takes care of her son, four daughters, and small farm while her husband works in India to support the family.

In August, Lakshmi cut her little finger on a thorn. The wound is now seriously infected, making it nearly impossible for her to work. Her finger needs to be amputated to prevent an even more severe infection from spreading.

The farm Lakshmi lives on only keeps her family afloat for three months at a time. Despite the supplemental income her husband earns in India, she can’t pay for the treatment she needs.

Your help raising $1,465 will guarantee that Lakshmi gets proper treatment. The cost covers her diagnostics, travel, treatment and a community health worker to help with recovery. Let’s make sure this simple accident doesn’t turn into a serious medical problem for this hardworking mom!
