Ram is a curious second grader from Nepal who enjoys studying English and playing volleyball with his friends. Recently, Ram has had to stay home from school due to pain and swelling caused by his inguinal hernia, a condition he was born with that has become increasingly uncomfortable.

If Ram’s hernia goes untreated, it could cause further swelling of his intestines and could become fatal. Ram’s parents are eager to see their son’s health improve, but as day laborers caring for seven children, they cannot afford the cost of his medical bills.

For $1390, Ram will have an operation to correct his inguinal hernia. In addition to the surgery, this fee will cover the cost of transportation to and from the hospital along with other necessary medications. Together, we can fund Ram’s treatment so that he can return to school and comfortably play with his friends and siblings!
