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.

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.

Vaishnavi

Vaishnavi, nine years old is the eldest daughter to Rajesh Kumar and his wife Pooja. The family live in Agra where Vaishnavi attends school and is in Class III. Around six months ago, she developed a high fever so her parents rushed her to a local pediatrician who found she had an irregular heartbeat. The doctor advised the parents to consult a pediatric cardiologist. Both Rajesh and Pooja were completely clueless, they didn’t know how to consult one and with what means they would be able to make this happen. Luckily, the pediatrician referred them to Dr Neeraj Awasthy who told them about an outreach program Max Hospital conducts in Agra itself. The screening showed that Vaishnavi had a hole in between the upper chamber of the heart (Atrial Septal Defect) and that she needed to come to Delhi for a more detailed check-up. She has been admitted for surgery, which Rajesh cannot afford as he earns Rs 7000 per month as a tailor. With the support from our CSR partner – Sennheiser, we have been able to pay for the surgery and relieve the parents and give Vaishnavi a chance to live.

Arjun Baliya

Two year old Arjun Baliya is the only child of Geeta and Lahu Asaram Baliya from Malegaon in Maharashtra, and has had a heart disorder since his birth. When he was two months old, he developed a fever. His parents took him to the village doctor where he was given medicines but, his fever refused to subside. After a few days, his parents took the child to the district hospital where the doctors found that he was having an irregular heartbeat. The parents were asked to go Mumbai, but were unable to do so. About a year back a camp was organized in the district by SRCC NH Children's Hospital. The parents took the child to the camp. A preliminary echo suggested that Arjun had VSD (hole between lower chamber of heart) and Pulmonary Stenosis (narrowing of Pulmonary Valve). The parents were informed that surgery was the only method to correct the defect. It was extremely difficult for the parents to arrange the money since Lahu Asaram is a landless farm labourer with a monthly income of Rs 2000. The parents came to Mumbai for the surgery where the child was operated and discharged in stable condition with financial help from our CSR partner - WPP India CSR Foundation.
