CAF KIDS STORIES

Roshini

Only 6 years old and the third child to Gajrajand Sunita. They have a large family of five children – three girls and two boys and together live in Uttar Pradesh. She is suffering from a congenital Heart Disorder and had a complex subset of Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) called Double Outlet Right Ventricle (DORV). In this particular ailment, the aorta originates from the pulmonary artery instead of the left atrium. Resulting to an override of the two main arteries. When Roshini first started showing signs of an illness – her parents unfortunately were oblivious to the severity and did not show her to a doctor. This lead to her saturation levels dropping quite significantly and she started turning blue. A local doctor finally referred them to an NGO called “Pure Hearts” who got in touch with us. Gajraj, is a tailor and earns a salary of Rs 8000 monthly. As one can imagine, with a family of this size it’s close to impossible to manage the house, and the needs of his children and wife. Now, with the financial stress that looms over them as they search for ways to get their daughter treated and live a life of good health. Roshini has been operated, and also discharged in a stable condition all because of your compassion for these children in need, and your belief in us to Save Little Hearts. We have been able to give her a chance to go back to school and continue her life that she has been blessed with. Her parents are relieved and are eternally grateful for the help, we have been able to provide together – sharing our vision to make a difference.
