His father Chinnappayyan Pandiyan and mother Jeeva Have another son – elder and they struggle every month to make ends meet for their family. Chinnappayyan is a coolie and earns Rs 5000 per month, naturally the costs of surgery were too high for him to bear.

Karengula Abhiram

Karengula Abhiram, a four-year-old young boy is the second child to Lokesh and Kavitha. The family reside in Mancherial district of Telangana, where two months ago he became unconscious. The parents were frightened, and rushed him to a local district hospital where he was stabilized. The doctors noticed that he had an irregular heartbeat and was further referred to Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences in Hyderabad for further management. Both Lokesh and Kavitha had never ventured out and were not comfortable with going to a new city but with some help from local friends they arrived in Hyderabad for a further check-up. Lokesh is a labourer who works hard and long hours and cannot afford surgery. Karengula’s pacemaker implantation was successful, and we were relieved that with the support of WPP India CSR Foundation we were able to help another beating heart beat healthier and happier than before.

Diksha

One year old Diksha, is the only child to Sunil and Pihu Kumari, who live in Agra. Since the day she was born, this little girl has suffered from a congenital heart disorder. Breathing for her was difficult, so her parents frequented the local district hospital where she was always given medicines. A local doctor finally told them that they should wait to see the doctors from Max Hospital, Delhi who visit Agra through outreach camps. After they took Diksha to one of the camps, the nature of the disease was clear. An echo had been conducted and she was diagnosed to have Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) which is a hole between the descending aorta and the pulmonary artery. The parents were told that through a Cath Lab procedure, Diksha could be given a chance to live. The parents were happy to hear that there was a chance for their daughter to get better, but they could not understand how to put together the funds required for the surgery. With the support of WPP India CSR Foundation, we supported this case and Diksha’s beating heart was given a chance to beat stronger. She was discharged in a stable condition.

Aradhaya

Only three-months-old, Aradhaya is a baby girl born in Pimpri, Maharashtra to Meena and Satish. Their first and only child whose birth they awaited with such excitement became the scariest ordeal they could have ever had to overcome together. She was diagnosed with Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection (TAPVC) which required urgent intervention. Satish earns a meagre income of Rs 2000 per month as a labourer and couldn’t put together the funds that were required to save his baby girl. With support from WPP India CSR Foundation, we were able to financially aid the surgery at SRCC NH Children’s Hospital and give her family relief to look forward to a future together with their daughter.
