Sarmila is a five-year-old girl who lives with her parents and siblings. Her father is a teacher, and her mother grazes their cattle, works in the field, and looks after her young children. The yield from the field sustains their family for six months of the year.
Earlier this month, Sarmila fell from the porch of her house and fractured her left elbow. Since then, she has been in pain, and her hand is swollen. She needs help with everyday tasks, such as eating and dressing. Her parents finally decided to seek medical help, bringing her to our medical partner’s care center, Bayalpata Hospital.
On February 20, Sarmila will be fitted with a cast to align the fracture in her elbow. The family needs help to pay for this $541 procedure.
“I wish her treatment happens soon and she is relieved from pain,” shares Sarmila’s father.
