Rabin received surgery to prevent an infection from spreading.

The operation on Rabin’s abscess was a great success! It has healed nicely and he can now go back to his job. Thanks to your support, Rabin will be able to support his family again!

Rabin was full of gratitude. “If I would not have got this care, it would have been difficult for me… I am lucky to get this support,” he told our medical partners.

Rabin is the eldest son in a large family in Nepal. At 23, he’s taken on the responsibility of providing for his family by working as a farmer.

About a month ago, Rabin developed an abscess. It is causing him pain, swelling, and difficulty walking. Rabin wants to recover quickly so that he can continue to work and provide for his family, but he can’t afford the ridiculously inexpensive operation he needs to do so.

For $225, we can help pay for an operation that will prevent the infection from spreading to other parts of his body. Rabin is a generous man who works hard for his family, let’s help him keep doing what he’s doing!

Rin

Rin is a 47-year-old farmer. Rin and his wife have three children, one son, two daughters, and one grandchild. His daughters are married, his son still lives at home and is a cook at a local restaurant. In 2019, Rin was hit by a car while on his motorcycle and fractured his right tibia and fibula. He was treated for his fracture at a local hospital, with external fixation of the bones to repair his fracture. A year later, the external fixation was removed, he had a fever and active infection, and his bones did not heal properly. On the advice of his neighbor, he visited Children's Surgical Centre in June and was given antibiotics for a month to clear up the infection prior to any surgery. He was not able to return until December due to the coronavirus lockdown and provincial restrictions for travel. He's unable to put weight on his leg and must use crutches. He feels unwell most of the time and has swelling and pain. His leg has not healed properly - it is bowed and the bone is freely moveable. Right now he cannot work on his farm or make money to feed his family. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre, can help. On December 14th, Rin will undergo a fracture repair procedure, which will cost $465. Proper correction and alignment of his bones will help him return to full function and to farming to support his family. "I hope after surgery my leg will finally heal, and I will be able to walk again. I want to work on my farm to feed my family and make sure my grandchild will go to school."
