This is Prem, a 45-year-old gentleman from Nepal. Prem is a family man who works hard to take care of his many children.
Prem’s journey to Watsi began when he slipped on the way to a neighbors home. He injured his right hand and has had pain, swelling, and limited movement ever since. Prem is the sole breadwinner for his large family of seven. He is a mason by profession, and does daily construction work that constantly requires him to use his hands. His injury makes this very difficult and painful.
Prem says that his sole aim is to make sure his children get a good education, which depends on his ability to work and provide for them. For $205, Prem will receive a cast that will allow his hand to heal, and he will be able to work again to support his family.
