Rishik, 11 months old lives in Kerala with his mother Jamshiya and father SubashBabu. He was diagnosed with a heart disorder called Tetralogy of Fallot, which has caused a hole in the lower chamber of his heart with a narrowing of the pulmonary valve. He was operated at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, in Kochi and is now recovering. Subash Babu, is a worker in a factory and brings home Rs 8000 per month. The family struggles as they have three children, bringing together the money to get the necessary treatment for their son was just not possible. This is where we stepped in to take the financial burden away from the family and give this baby a chance to live.

Baby of Surekha

Baby of Surekha Prasad, only three days old from Thrisur District was diagnosed at birth with a Heart Disorder that is referred to as an Obstructive Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection (TAPVC). In this life-threatening condition the pulmonary veins from the lungs terminate at the right atrium, instead of the left and needs to be surgically corrected. This surgery was conducted at Amrita Institude of Medical Sciences, in Kochi. Her mother is a house wife, and father is a laborer who earns Rs 8000 per month. This is their second child, and they have been at a complete loss to try and get together the funds required to save their daughter. Luckily, the baby has shown positive signs of recovery and we can be grateful that with your support we were able to save one more little heart.

Paridhi Chauhan

Paridhi Chauhan, the daughter of Aarti and Divan Chauhan is a four year old girl from Khurja, Uttar Pradesh. Her father is a farmer and only earns Rs. 3,000/- a month. She suffered from a condition in which there was a hole present between the Aorta and Pulmonary Artery. This hole was closed by a PDA device closure and this operation took place in the cath lab of Apollo Hospital in New Delhi. The funds for this life changing surgery were provided by the Genesis Foundation and Paridhi now leads a happy and healthy life.

Arushi

Arushi, eight months old from Uttar Pradesh, was only six days old when she had pneumonia for which her family consulted a local pediatrician. She was referred to go to Varanasi, where the necessary investigations were conducted. It was found that the child had a heart defect and required urgent surgical intervention. The thought of surgery on such a young baby worried her parents so they took their daughter to Mumbai for further medical management. The family consulted KEM Hospital for her treatment and was put on a waiting list. There was no date that was given to the family for the surgery so the pediatrician referred the baby to Seven Hills Hospital, where the surgery could not be performed so once again the family was referred to a different hospital – Fortis Hospital, Mulund for surgical closure of multiple VSD (hole in the lower chamber of the heart). Arushi’s father Ravindra and mother Aarti were struggling to bring together the funds required for the surgery. Ravindra, works in a dairy farm and brings home Rs 5000 per month, so they reached out to Genesis Foundation for financial support towards the medical costs.

One can only imagine how difficult it is to manage a big family and its day-to-day needs with a tight budget.
