Name: Sapana Shrestha
Age: 10 years
DOB: 7th November 2007
Currently Lives: Lalitpur, Nepal
Family members: 6 ( Mother, Father, 3 x Sisters, 1 x Brother)
Sapana's father "Santa Kumar" was a taxi driver. He earned good money and provided well for his family. In October of 2017 he started to feel ill and went to a hospital, after tests he was informed he had acute kidney failure stemming from years of suffering diabetes.
Upon finding a hospital that was able to treat him, he moved his family to that same area of Kathmandu. For the last 4 months Santa Kumar has been regularly having dialysis treatment.
He has already sold the land he owned to help cover costs. His wife and Sapana's mother "Bishnu" left her job of house-maid to become full time carer.
With the help of his V.D.C.'s (Village Development Committee) he gets free Dialysis 3 times a week.
Medicines, doctors appointments and physiotherapy all need to be covered by the family.
Santa Kumar has employed a driver so his taxi business can continue to operate. After expenses for the business he may make $180 per month. Having 4 growing children all studying at school, their school expenses coupled with house rent, medical expenses, living expenses and food costs, Santa Kumar and Bishnu are under incredible financial stress, not to mention physical stress.
Sapana is the second oldest of 4 children, she loves her current school and is well regarded by her teachers.
Earlier in 2018 we found a sponsor for Sapana's older sister Sabina, and recently (July 2018), Santa Kumar's health has been rapidly declining. We thought its about time to help relieve some extra stress and bless them with another of his children's education being supported.
With your support of $33 per month Sapana can continue her studies. You can help give her the best opportunity for a brighter future and help relieve the financial burden upon her family.
