Around the world, so many children and adults face crippling medical conditions that could easily be corrected with surgery. Unfortunately for those living in poor and remote regions, these surgeries are often unavailable, unaffordable, or both. That’s where you come in. As a compassionate partner with Operation Blessing, you can change, or even save, someone’s life by giving them the surgery and medical care that they so desperately need. Whether it’s surgery to correct clubfoot, fix a cleft palate, bring healing after a terrible burn, repair a heart defect, or anything else, your generosity has the power to bring healing and hope to those in need. Through our offices, medical brigades, and partnerships around the world, Operation Blessing staff frequently meet people suffering without the surgeries they need.
Priyanka is a young lady from India who enjoys spending time with her friends and works hard in school. Sadly, years ago she was playing with her little brother, Rahul, when tragedy struck. The two were playing with a plastic bag when a fire burning nearby ignited the bag. Priyanka and her brother’s hands were engulfed in burning plastic. (You can find Rahul’s surgery fund in Operation Blessing’s Life-Changing Surgeries Catalog.)
Priyanka’s parents rushed her to the local government hospital, but the hospital did not have the right facilities and was only able to provide first aid to the injured children.
The burned skin began to contract, restricting the growth and movement of Priyanka’s hands. Now, at 12 years old, Priyanka still can’t write properly and struggles with limited use of her hands. As day laborers in India, Priyanka’s parents are unable to afford the treatment Priyanka needs.
Today, Priyanka is still waiting for healing, needing surgery on both hands—and YOU can help give it to her! For just $2,900, together we can provide the operation that Priyanka needs to restore her hands. Will you give a special gift today?
Don’t forget to visit OB’s Life-Changing Surgeries Catalog to help Priyanka’s brother, Rahul, and other patients in need.
Funds raised will provide for the surgical procedure and associated costs such as transportation, hospital stay, and recovery care for Priyanka. In the event we raise more funds than are needed for Priyanka’s surgery, or in the unlikely event Priyanka’s surgery cannot be performed as planned, funds will be used to assist other patients in need of life-changing surgeries.
