Kids Supported

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.

Nidhi

Nidhi, five months old lives in Panipat, Haryana with her mother Mamta and father Satender. Since the day she was born she has suffered from a heart disorder. Her pulmonary valve is severely narrow which in turn restricts the flow of blood to the lungs. Nidhi has suffered from constant breathing problems and was not growing, which naturally left Mamta and Satender alarmed and unsettled. The doctors at Apollo Hospital conduct an outreach OPD in Panipat, so both parents took their baby there for examination. The doctors explained that they needed to bring their daughter to Delhi urgently for a procedure. However, Satender who works hard as a labourer earns Rs 5000 per month could not afford it. With the support of WPP India CSR Foundation we have agreed to support this case and ensure that Nidhi gets the treatment that she requires to live.

Mithya Sankar

Mithya Sankar, one year old from Palakkad, has been prescribed a surgical closure of a Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, in Kochi. Her father Shankar works as a waiter in a hotel and earns Rs 4000 per month with which he supports his two children and wife. They are unable to pay for surgery and have come to us for financial support, so Mithya can get the necessary treatment and live a healthy and close to normal life.
