Manjusha’s baby is now a little over a month old, and in this brief span of time he has already had a taste of just how difficult life can be. But hopefully he has also learnt, that sometimes - trying times occur just so we can appreciate the strength of a miracle.

Born into a tribal community, in a village in Kannur, Kerala, the baby was taken home in stable state from the district hospital in Thalassery. When he was twelve days old, his mother noticed that her baby was experiencing breathlessness, and thus took him to the Calicut Medical College. Read More

Kids Supported

Baby of Anju

Baby of Anju, only one month into this world, has been diagnosed with a heart disorder called a Ventricular Septal Defect, which needs surgical closure. The little baby and family hail from Kerala and struggle daily to make ends meet for their two children. The baby’s father Kuruvila is a farmer and earns Rs 4000 per month while mother Anju looks after both children at home. The surgery has been scheduled at Amrita Hospital, in Kochi and we are dedicated to financially support this case.

Md Zaid

Md Zaid, nearly two years old is the second child to Tajkeera and Abu, who reside in Aligarh District, Uttar Pradesh. Zaid was born with a congenital heart disorder called Tetralogy of Fallot. Since birth he was a blue baby with low saturation levels. When he was just one month old, his parents noticed that he was not taking a feed with ease and was gasping. Then started the frequent bouts of pneumonia, so they found themselves in and out of the pediatricians clinic with lots of medication. Many months later, little Zaid fainted and was rushed to Aligarh Muslim University Hospital where he was admitted, revived and put back on medication. An Echo was also conducted which showed the exact nature of the disease and it was clear – surgery was the only saving grace. The parents were referred to Max Hospital, Delhi, but they could not afford surgery as Abu earned a humble salary of Rs 3500 per month as a labourer. With support from our donor Radha Chadha we were able to take this burden off the family and save Md Zaid’s little heart.

Daksh

Daksh, a one year old boy from Mumbai has been suffering from a congenital heart disorder. He required urgent surgical closure, however the family could not afford the surgery as his father Suhash Yadav earns Rs 6500 per month with which he struggles to make ends meet within his family and daily needs. He has been suffering from an Atrial Septal Defect, and has now been operated on at Fortis Hospital, Mulund and is now recovering in the comforts of his home.

The family could not put together the funds required for the surgery – they are extremely grateful that we were able to take this burden away and get their son the treatment he urgently required.

Anushka Chaudhary

Anushka Chaudhary, three years old from Mumbai is suffering from a Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) – a hole in the lower chamber of the heart that needs closure with a device. This surgery will take place at Jupiter Hospital, in Mumbai itself. Anushka’s father, Umesh is a farmer who earns Rs 4000 per month. They do not have the means to afford the surger that will save Anushka’s life. Om Khade, six months old from Rajasthan, is suffering from Patent Ductus Arteriosis (PDA) – a hole between the Aorta and Pulmonary Artery which is closed in a Cath Lab. This procedure will be conducted at Jupiter Hospital, in Mumbai itself. His father Dattaray, is a laborer who brings home Rs 3000 per month. On this humble earning, and two children, it’s impossible to put aside any money that is required for the surgery.
