Eshal

Eshal, eleven month old girl, from Kollam in Kerala is suffering from a heart disorder called tetralogy of fallot and was prescribed life-saving surgery at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, in Kochi. Eshal’s father Sajeer is a driver and earns Rs 7000 per month, with which it’s impossible for him to pay for surgery. The family requires financial support to give their daughter the treatment she rightly deserves to live.

Baby of Mufeeda

Only two days old, baby of Mufeeda was born in Malappuram and suffered from a congenital heart disorder called Transposition of Great Arteries (TGA). His father, a salesman earns Rs 8000 per month and naturally could not put together the funds required for the surgery – so reached out to us at Genesis Foundation. We were able to financially support the surgery – an Arterial Switch operation which was conducted at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, in Kochi.

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.
