Monika is a five-year-old student and the oldest child in her family. She just started the first grade. When she is not at school, Monika likes to play with other children around her house.
In April, Monika was playing with friends and tripped causing a fracture of her left forearm. This injury has left Monika’s arm red and swollen and has made it difficult for her to dress and feed herself.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), can help. On April 18th, Monika will undergo a fracture repair procedure and CSC is helping Monika and her family raise $483 to cover the cost of the surgery. This procedure will repair Monika’s forearm, and she will be able to use her hand again.
Her mother said, “I hope this surgery can fix her arm and she can return to school. It is hard to see her cry every day.”
