Jan 26, Kathmandu – Eleven-year-old Ramesh Darji of Bhimgithe in Baglung district suffers from a rare fungal disease and his condition is getting worse as he gets older.
Darji’s face and body parts have been ravaged by unusual skin fungus.His parents have been running from pillar to post in search of cure for their son’s bizarre condition.
After the story came into light in social media and the Post, locals have now opened a bank account (Nepal Bank Limited, Burtibang Branch, A/c no. 121000101110) for collecting donations for the child’s treatment.
“He cannot go to school due to his condition,” said Nar Kumari Darji, Ramesh’s mother. Darji family had taken Ramesh twice to the Baglung district hospital and once to a hospital in Butwal for treatment but of no avail.
“Doctors said that his treatment is possible in Chitwan. But we don’t have enough money to take him there,” Nar Kumari told the Post over telephone from her village.
Nar Kumar said that her son suffered from the disease right after his birth.
“But we could do little to cure his disease. His condition is getting worse every year,” said Nar Kumari.
