Ramesh received an arm splint to recover from injuries sustained protecting his family's goats.

Doctors report that, “He will be able to play and have fun with his friends. He will also be able to look after his younger brother.”

Ramesh’s father is grateful and says, “In India, the treatment even for small illnesses, were so expensive. But here, right in our backyard, we get these services for free. I think we have become very developed in this sense. Thanks a lot!”

Ramesh is a curious five-year-old boy who lives with his parents and younger brother in Nepal. Recently, Ramesh was looking after his family’s goats and injured himself in the brave act of trying to protect one goat from another.

Ramesh has been unable to move his hand since the incident and his parents have had to spend time looking after their son instead of farming their fields. His father says, “I will never send Ramesh to graze goats from now on. I will send him to school as soon as he gets better.”

For $205, Ramesh will have a splint put on his arm to help his bone heal. With this treatment, Ramesh will be able to care for his brother and start going to school. Let’s help Ramesh get well and back to playing!

Ferdinand

Ferdinand is a father of two from the Philippines. He has one son and one daughter. Both he and his wife both work as public school teachers. Their income is still insufficient for their needs, however and, in addition to supporting their children, part of their salary goes to their medication for diabetes and hypertension. In September, Ferdinand began to experience several troubling symptoms, including severe abdominal pain. He was rushed to an emergency room to be treated. The ultrasound test showed that he has gallstones. Ferdinand has been advised to undergo a cholecystectomy which is the surgical removal of the gallbladder. If left untreated, his symptoms will continue to worsen and will put him at risk of further health complications in the future. After seeking treatment through our medical partner, World Surgical Foundation Philippines (WSFP), Ferdinand is scheduled to undergo a cholecystectomy on December 3rd. A portion of the cost of the procedure is being supported by the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation, and WSFP is raising the remaining $826 to cover the cost of Ferdinand's surgery and care. "Because of my condition, I'm in constant pain which hinders me from doing my usual activities. I've tried to reach out for help to our local government but was unsuccessful," Ferdinand shared. "I am glad there are foundations like Watsi and World Surgical Foundation Philippines that exist. I'm forever grateful for the help that you've given me," he added.
