Riwaj is a nine-year-old boy in third grade. He lives with his parents and siblings, while his father works in India to support the family.
One day, Riwaj was walking down the stairs when he slipped and injured his left wrist. His hand swelled considerably, and it has continued to cause him pain. He cannot attend school, and he needs help with his everyday activities, including eating and bathing.
Riwaj and his mother walked for two hours to reach Watsi’s medical partner, Possible, at their local care center, Bayalpata Hospital. On November 28, surgeons performed a closed fracture surgery, repositioning the wrist bone fragments and placing the left wrist in a cast. This procedure will allow the fracture to heal slowly and properly.
Now, Riwaj’s family needs help to fund this $195 procedure.
