Kids Supported

Jasmika

Jasmika, was born on 3rd July 2015 in a remote village in Tamil Nadu to Durairaju Sivasamy and Nithya. She was diagnosed with a congenital heart disorder when she was two months old by a local pediatrician who referred the family to a cardiologist for further examination. When they went to see Dr Krishna Kumar, he confirmed the diagnosis – Tetralogy of Fallot and advised surgery. Durairaju, is a daily wage worker who is the only earning member of the family and brings home Rs 4000 per month. They have another child, a boy – managing both children and day-to-day needs made it impossible to put together the funds required so they kept postponing the dates of surgery. They have managed to raise around Rs 50,000 for the surgery on their own however the rest of the cost will be supported by Radha Chadha

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.

Anushka Chaudhary

Anushka Chaudhary, three years old from Mumbai is suffering from a Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) – a hole in the lower chamber of the heart that needs closure with a device. This surgery will take place at Jupiter Hospital, in Mumbai itself. Anushka’s father, Umesh is a farmer who earns Rs 4000 per month. They do not have the means to afford the surger that will save Anushka’s life. Om Khade, six months old from Rajasthan, is suffering from Patent Ductus Arteriosis (PDA) – a hole between the Aorta and Pulmonary Artery which is closed in a Cath Lab. This procedure will be conducted at Jupiter Hospital, in Mumbai itself. His father Dattaray, is a laborer who brings home Rs 3000 per month. On this humble earning, and two children, it’s impossible to put aside any money that is required for the surgery.

Ganesh

Ganesh, fourteen years old lives in Pune with his mother Indu and father Anna Tambe. He has been diagnosed with a cardiac disorder and requires a VSD closure with an Aortic Valve Repair at SRCC NH Hospital in Mumbai. Anna earns Rs 4000 as a farmer and is struggling to put together the funds required for the surgery. They have reached out to us for support, and we are happy to financially support this case and help Ganesh onto a road of recovery.

Aahil

Aahil is a three year old boy from Aligarh who was diagnosed with a congenital heart disorder – Tetralogy of Fallot. The corrective surgery took place at Max Hospital, that his father Mosam was not able to afford as he struggles to make ends meet on a humbly earned salary of Rs 4000 he earns as a labourer. We were able to financially support this surgery – taking off this stress from the family and ensuring that Aahil is given a chance to live, with a healthy, happy heart.

Baby of Adhila

Baby of Adhila, was born on 22nd November 2017 in a remote village in Malappuram, Kerala. The baby’s father Sanfeek is a fisherman who earns a humble amount of Rs 5000 per month. On a monthly basis, the family struggles – and their struggle was amplified when in the sixth month of pregnancy a heart disorder was detected through a scan. After the birth, the baby was referred to Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, in Kochi for further management. The little baby, just made his entry into this world when he was incubated and transported in a ventilated ambulance on a four-hour journey. Dr Krishna Kumar met the little baby as he arrived and he was taken straight to IMCU where he was kept under close observation. The baby required open heart surgery and was operated on the 1st December 2017, after we were able to commit to financially supporting this case as the family could not afford the entire cost of the surgery.
