Kids Supported

Md. Taqui

Md. Taqui, two years old, was born as a blue baby in Lucknow. He was diagnosed with a heart disorder called Tetralogy of Fallot and had a low saturation of 60%. He had frequent bouts of pneumonia, so the family were in and out of the local pediatricians clinic often where medicines were always prescribed. In March 2017, his father Sultan Ahmed and mother Rukkaya were alarmed when their son got extremely sick, he was admitted and stablished at Aligarh Muslim University Hospital. Sultan Ahmed, was a clerk at a private school and earned Rs 6000 a month. Every month was difficult, now life had taken a turn for even more stresses as they were unable to bear the medical costs and surgery was the only life-saving measure. They reached out to us, and we were committed to financially support this case. Md. Taqui was taken to Jaypee Hospital for surgery. This little boy’s case was slightly rare as usually the two pulmonary arteries are of the same length, but in his case the left artery was larger than the right which caused complications post-surgery. We were extremely relieved and naturally so were the parents as he recovered and now has been discharged in better health.

Baby of Sithara

Baby of Sithara, one month old baby boy from Kerala, is suffering from an obstructed Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection (TAPVC). And in this condition the Pulmonary veins from the lungs terminate at the right chamber of the heart instead of the left. As a dangerous result, there is mixing of pure and impure blood and the saturation of the baby very low. The only life-saving measure is surgery, which the baby’s parents Sithara and Shaiju cannot afford. Shaiju works as a driver and earns Rs 10,000 per month and needs financial support to meet surgery costs. We are committed in supporting this case at Amirta Institute of Medical Sciences, in Kochi.

Mohini Mistry

Mohini Mistry, twelve years old from Maharashtra, is suffering from a heart disorder where the tricuspid valve between the right atrium and right ventricle are displaced from the original position. As a result of which, the right ventricle is enlarged and the muscles, weak. The tricuspid valve will be replaced and put back to its original position. The surgery took place in June, and was supported by us. Nilima, the mother and Gulab, the father have three children who are supported on Gulab’s salary of Rs 4000 per month, which he earns as a carpenter. They were naturally struggling to make ends meet, we were lucky to have stepped in to help give Mohini a chance at a healthy life.

Muhammed Ameen

Muhammed Ameen, a two month old boy lives in Kerala with his mother and father. His father, a salesman earns Rs 7000 per month. He suffers from Truncus Arteriosus which is a rare heart disorder present since birth. In a healthy heart, two main blood vessels come out of the heart, the Aorta and the Pulmonary Artery. In truncus arteriosus, only a single blood vessel comes out of the ventricle. A hole is also present in between the lower chambers of the heart called a Ventricle Septal Defect (VSD). During the surgery the single truncus is kept as the Aorta, the pulmonary artery is created by inserting a conduit and the branch Pulmonary Arteries are sewn to the new artery. Simultaneously the VSD is closed. This life altering operation was conducted in the Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre, in Kochi and was financially supported by us at Genesis Foundation.

Ajay Lahu Agewale

Ajay Lahu Agewale, eight years old from Nashik has been suffering from a congenital heart disorder. He has been prescribed a surgical closure of a Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) at Jupiter Hospital in Mumbai. His mother Manjula and father Lahu have three children together. Lahu earns Rs 2000 and supports his fairly large family – one can only imagine the distress the family goes through on a daily basis. Now there is pressure of bringing together the necessary funds to save their sons life. We have been lucky to help in our attempt to save little Ajay’s heart.

Muntazir

Muntazir, is ten years old and the only child to Tasleem and Nafisa, who lives in a remote part of Jammu & Kashmir. Their son is their love, as they had lost two children earlier to heart disorder and now Muntazir too was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot. In this particular ailment, there is a hole in between the lower chambers of the heart with severe narrowing of the pulmonary valve. He had severe breathing problems which naturally made everyday life extremely uncomfortable for him and naturally panicked his parents. They brought him to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Delhi and was seen by the cardiologist who referred him to the surgical department. But because they were so short on funds, they could not pay anything. His father is an electrical who earns approximately Rs 5000 per month – they needed help if they were to consider getting their son treated, and without treatment he would not live. He goes to school and studies in Class 4, but is irregular due to his illness. We have supported this case with the help of Radha Chadha.
