“I hope my treatment will happen soon,” Laxman shares.

A native of Nepal, 44-year-old Laxman works hard to support his wife and children through farming. However, this work has been especially difficult for him lately.

About five years ago, Laxman developed a small swelling in his scrotum. The swelling, also known as a hydrocele, is caused by an accumulation of excess fluid in the membrane of his testis. Since he first discovered the hydrocele, its size has increased, and it now causes him pain periodically. These days, he even has trouble working and walking.

When Laxman attempted to treat himself using local herbs, the hydrocele only grew larger. Finally, Laxman took the hour-long jeep ride to Bayalpata Hospital, our medical partner’s care center. Doctors there have urged him to receive hydrocele repair surgery, a procedure wherein a small incision is made in the scrotum and the excess fluid is drained.

Laxman is scheduled to undergo this operation on March 27. Although he cannot afford the procedure on his own, we can help for $380. This sum will pay for Laxman’s procedure, as well as the lab tests, medications, and three-day hospital stay he’ll need.

Let’s help Laxman return to a pain-free daily life.
