"I will become a doctor and one day I will treat the same doctors that treated me"
At the age of 2, Adip was diagnosed with a congenital heart disease and operated when he was four years old.
His low-income family lives near Pokhara, a relatively large city, that doesn’t offer the right facilities for the care Adip needed. So the family had to travel for days to Kathmandu to save Adip’s life and asked relatives and friends for loans.
After a successful operation, Adip and his family needed to come back annually for check-ups but it was only two years after the operation they had saved enough money to come back to Kathmandu for a check-up.
The costs for families could be so much lower if KIOCH could provide these facilities to the rurals.
