Katka is a curious and adventurous first grader from Nepal. He enjoys school and loves playing soccer with his friends. When he grows up, he wants to be a professional soccer player.
Four days ago, Katka fell and broke his arm. Doctors at Nyaya Health say that if he doesn’t receive treatment immediately, his injury could evolve into something much more debilitating. This is a situation where a relatively simple injury could result in life-altering problems, including muscle damage, nerve damage, and a permanent flexion contracture of the hand at the wrist, resulting in a claw-like deformity of the hand and fingers.
Katka comes from a supportive family that wants the best for him. His parents make their living by farming for 2-3 months of the year. The rest of the time, they rely on daily wage jobs to support Katka and his five siblings. Paying for the medical care Katka needs is out of reach for them.
We need to raise the $990 Katka needs for pre-op, surgery, supplies, travel, and lodging. With treatment, doctors at Nyaya Health believe Katka will be able to avoid permnanent disability, continue his studies, and lead a normal life.
