Samir received treatment to remove a painful growth.

Samir’s mother says, “I learnt that the local remedies that we use at our homes may further complicate the case. This is good that we got the proper treatment near our homes. Thank you to all those who helped in the treatment of my son. May you achieve success.”

Say hello to baby Samir!

Samir is a one-year-old boy and the only child of his parents. He and his mother live in Nepal, while his father is living and working in India to provide for his family and for Samir’s future education.

“Samir developed a small raised lesion on the back of his neck which kept on increasing in size,” writes our medical partner, Possible. As the lesion grew it became more tender and filled with pus. Possible says, “Samir refuses to eat because of the pain. He cannot play or even sleep easily.”

For $220 dollars, we can help Possible provide treatment for Samir. “After incision and drainage of the lesion, Samir will be prescribed antibiotics and regular dressing will be done. This will allow him to eat and sleep comfortably,” says the team at Possible.

Let’s help Samir become a happy, healthy, pain-free baby!

Titus

Titus, a happy 7-year old boy, was born and raised in Kapsabaa Village in Kenya. He is in first grade. He was well until the 8th of April, when he was pushed by a friend when they were playing together and hit the hard ground, injuring his left hand. Accompanied by his mother, Titus had to travel for several hours to get from their home to Watsi's partner hospital to be seen by doctors. His family was referred from a government hospital because they were unable to treat him due to lack of financial means. Very quickly after arriving at our partner hospital, an X-ray was done and confirmed a left supracondylar fracture. Due to pain and discomfort, Titus was admitted and scheduled for surgery. Titus is the second born in a family of four children. His mother is a grocer while his father is a mason. They both work hard to better their young family despite the fact that his father does not have a stable job as he only can wait for construction, which is rare in the village. The family has not been saving any money because they earn a little, which is enough to feed their family and gather for a few basic needs for their children. The young family lives in a rental house in the village centre. The injury has caused Titus’s parents a lot of worry about their son’s future because the fracture has made it difficult for Titus to use his hand. The young family is requesting for financial support to help their son undergo surgery to fix his broken hand and reduce chances of complications of healing badly and persistent pain. Gladys, Titus's Mother, says: “We were lacking means but we were given hope of finding treatment for our son when we came here. I am looking forward to seeing him not in pain again.”
