Meet Ratan! Three months ago, she burned her hand with hot cooking oil. She never received proper initial treatment, and now the injury is making it impossible for her to live the life she wants.

Ratan says the pain from her burns often keeps her up at night. She has not even been able to hold her newborn baby because of the burning, itching, and discomfort on her hand. For $1,415, Ratan can receive the plastic surgery necessary to decrease discomfort and prevent further complications.

Ratan’s husband works in India, while she farms and raises animals in Nepal with her two sons, her parents-in-law, and her brother-in-law’s family. She says she looks forward to be able to hold and nurture her baby after the surgery. Let’s make it happen for her!
