On July 8, Mr. Selvam, husband of one of our accountants at our Tamil Sponsor Site in India, was struck by a car while driving his motorcycle home from Kumbakonam.
He was rushed to a nearby government hospital and then transferred to a larger hospital. The orthopedic specialist doctor diagnosed a tendon rupture in his right thigh and a bone fracture in his right calf bone. On the same day he underwent surgery in his right leg, attaching a metal plate and stitching up his thigh muscles. After the treatment, he was hospitalized for 10 days before being discharged.
Mr. Selvam has been unable to work because of his accident, leaving his wife as the sole breadwinner of the family. They are unable to pay the hospital bill of $603.19 and the sponsor site has asked Chalice to support this family for this critical need.
