“Urmila studies in grade 5 and loves to study math and science. She wishes to be a nurse when she grows up,” shares our medical partner, Possible.
Urmila is an 11-year-old girl from Nepal. Possible explains, “Urmila had gone to the jungle to take her cattle for grazing when she tripped, fell and broke her left arm.” Since then she has been unable to go to school or help her family with the cattle. Urmila’s broken arm also makes it difficult for her to sleep and do other chores.
$579 will fund the treatment Urmila needs to repair her arm. The treatment involves a surgical procedure and casting. During the procedure, the doctor will realign Urmila’s broken bone and then set it in a cast so that the arm can heal properly. “Urmila will be able to start moving her arm in the next few weeks,” Possible adds. This will allow her to return to school and help her family with farming.
Urmila’s father expresses, “You guys have been a Godsend. I don’t know what I would have done if we could not get the treatment here.”
