Funds raised through the INF gift catalogue have helped 3-year-old Rajaram Chaudhary to make an amazing recovery from encephalitis.
Rajaram's parents live in Nepal's Bardiya District and are both blind, his father is also disabled. His mother supports the family by begging for food.
When neighbours saw that Rajaram was ill with a high fever, they collected the money to pay for travel costs and took Rajaram and his mother to the government's Bheri Zonal Hospital in Nepalgunj. At the hospital, INF's patient advocate Bishnu Bhattarai was able to use funds raised through INF's gift catalogue to ensure that Rajaram and his mother got the food and the medicine that they needed.
After just 15 days as an inpatient at the hospital, Rajaram made a complete recovery. Normally it can take two or three months for a patient to recover from encephalitis.
'The nurses at the hospital said that God took care of this little boy,' says INF's Indira Tamang. 'The nurses at the hospital were all full of praises for God because He healed Rajaram so quickly.'
