Chandra is an eight-year-old boy from Nepal and a patient with our medical partner, Possible. “Two years ago, Chandra’s father abandoned his family and settled in India. Soon after, his mother left him behind with her relatives and decided to start her life afresh,” explains Possible. Chandra’s grandmother and aunt now take care of him.
Chandra, a fourth grade boy, loves to play outdoors. Unfortunately, one day when he was somersaulting, he broke his hand. There was no one home who could take him to the hospital, and he had to wait two weeks before he was able to visit Possible.
Due to his circumstances, Chandra needs our financial support. For $579, we can fund treatment that will heal Chandra’s fracture. The cost of the treatment includes medicine, anesthetics, the surgery, as well as follow-up treatment from community health workers. After about a month, Chandra will be able to resume his daily activities.
Chandra’s aunt shared: “This child has been through so much, yet he continues to smile. I love that about him.”
