Raising funds for sister's surgery

Two days ago,  heavy boxes of books fell on my sister, Alka's, left leg. It caused multiple fractures (3 fractures on her fibula) and dislocation. The necessary treatment is surgery within 7 days. However, because the orthopedic surgeon is not in her husband's workplace network, she will have to pay the medical expenses out of pocket. The funds raised will help her pay the hospital bill and doctor's fees. Currently, she does not have any money for this as she remortgaged her house and is paying for her two sons' education. Alka is serving in the rural tribal areas of India, where she has started 3 schools. Recently, she started an adult literacy class for women in the villages in partnership with a Christian organization. She had received her first shipment of books for this program, the boxes of which fell on her leg. Please pray for her healing as well as her ministry. Also pray that God will provide all of the necessary funds for this unexpected incident.
