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!

Dennis

Dennis is a very shy and quiet boy from Kenya. Dennis was born with anal rectal malformation, where he lacked an anal opening. This caused trouble to his parents as he could not pass stool for an entire week when he was born. He had a colostomy created and was required to proceed with subsequent surgeries of the anal opening and colostomy closure. However, for the last 17 years, he has survived with the colostomy. His parents were not able to raise the funds needed for his surgeries. His area chief recently forced Dennis's parents to bring him to Bethany Kids Kijabe after much suffering. At Bethany Kids Kijabe, he was diagnosed and surgery recommended. He needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction. However, the family is still struggling financially. Dennis is the firstborn child in his family. Due to his condition, he has never been to school, being passed by all his 6 siblings who are schooling. Dennis is quite shy and prefers to be alone due to his condition. Successful surgery will allow Dennis to resume a relatively normal life like any other child and perhaps start schooling. His father is a security guard while his mother sells vegetables in their village.The family appeals for help. Dennis is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition on October 22nd. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,327 to cover the total cost of Dennis's procedure and care. “If only I knew, I would have come here early. I feel like I have wasted his life,” says Dennis's father with regret.
