Kamal is an eight-year-old boy from Nepal who lives with his parents and siblings. Kamal’s parents raise livestock and plant crops for a living. They rely on the yield from their field for five months of the year. They support themselves by selling goats for the rest of the year.
One day, as Kamal was climbing a wall with his friends, he fell and fractured his left elbow. The injury became very painful, so Kamal could no longer carry out his daily activities. He needs help eating and dressing.
To seek treatment, Kamal and his mother traveled for eight hours to reach our medical partner’s hospital. There, he will receive fracture repair treatment on March 28. The family needs help to pay for this $195 care.
“I hope his arm will recover fully soon,” says Kamal’s mother.
