Meet Iman, an 11-year-old sixth grader from Nepal! “Iman stays with his parents, grandmother, three brothers and a sister. They own a small piece of land where they grow cereals and pulses during the farming seasons,” writes our medical partner, Possible. Iman likes to play football with his friends during breaks at school, and enjoys “English language classes the most because he can hear new stories.”
Iman recently tripped and fell on his outstretched arms, fracturing both of his wrists and leaving him swollen and in pain. Possible shares, “due to pain he cannot move his hands properly. Since both of his hands are now affected, he has to depend upon others even for simple tasks. He cannot go to school either.”
For only $205, Iman can get two casts to allow his forearms to heal from the fractures. This treatment will relieve Iman of his pain, allowing him to perform daily activities on his own and return to school. His doctors add, “there will be no deformities and he will be able to lead a normal active life in the future.” Let’s help Iman heal so he can back to learning and playing!
