Tapesh is a nine-year-old student who lives with his grandparents. His parents live in India, and his father sends home money for Tapesh’s schooling. Tapesh enjoys listening to music and singing.
Tapesh was swinging on the branch of a tree when the branch snapped, and he fell to the ground and landed on his left hand. He has been in constant pain since then. He has difficulty writing in school, and he also cannot eat or dress on his own. Tapesh’s uncle took a three-hour jeep ride to bring him to our medical partner’s care center, Bayalpata Hospital.
On February 19, Tapesh will be fitted with a cast to align the bones in his wrist. Now, Tapesh needs assistance in funding this $195 treatment.
