Kari is a father and artisan from Nepal who has a painful and swollen inguinal hernia.

Kari doesn’t own his own land, so he supports his wife and children by making crafts from bamboo. His caretakers at our medical partner, Nyaya Health, say “it’s really difficult for him to afford treatment on his own.” Kari was first diagnosed with this condition four years ago, but until now he’s had no hope of being able to afford a referral to a higher center for treatment.

With our support, Kari can have a $1390 surgery to repair his hernia, relieve his pain, and prevent potentially fatal complications. The cost of treatment includes travel to Nepal’s capital, more than a day away, accompanied by staff from Nyaya Health.

Eudia

Eudia is a farmer and a 45-year-old single mother of two children. Her youngest just completed primary school and will be joining college next year while her daughter is in senior year three. Eudia earns a living through growing and selling onions, tomatoes, and eggplants. The income she generates enables her to cater to her needs and those of her parents as they live together. Eudia enjoys singing in the church choir. For a year now, Eudia has been experiencing abnormal bleeding, persistent backaches, generalized body weakness. She tried seeking medical treatment at a different healthcare center where they treated her for urinary tract infection. The treatment was not a success so they referred her to our medical partner's care center Nyakibale Hospital. At Nyakibale, she was examined with a scan and tests and has been diagnosed with a large uterine fibroid. Treatment will aid in the prevention of complications like anemia and the fibroid turning into cancer. Eudia is in need of treatment but is not financially able to finance it so she is requesting financial assistance. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $219 to fund Eudia's surgery. On January 4th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center. Once recovered, Eudia will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Eudia shared: “I am the sole provider for my family. My family needs me. I hope I will be able to regain my health and continue to support my family.”
