Kiran

Kiran, nine years old is the second child of Bachu Lal and Sanju. She is studying in class II in a government school in Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh. Since birth Kiran has had a hole in between the lower chamber of the heart (VSD). After birth, she had frequent bouts of fever so her parents used to take her to a local doctor. During one such visit, the doctor found that she had an irregular heartbeat. Bachu Lal and Sanju were asked to go a hospital in a city for further treatment. Bachu Lal is working as a watch man in Mumbai. As time passed, Kiran showed signs of poor weight gain and breathlessness. Both parents took her to a government hospital in Mumbai where she was further referred to Jupiter Hospital for further management. An Echo was conducted and the exact nature of the disease was investigated – fortunately, the hole had good circumference so it was close in a Cath Lab using a device, by Dr Srinivas Rao a Pediatric Cardiologist. The cost of surgery was much too high for Bachu Lal, he works hard and brings home Rs 5000 per month – he just couldn’t find a way to meet the costs. The doctors at the hospital contacted us for help and we committed ourselves in financially supporting this case with the help of WPP India CSR Foundation

Baby of Manyam Devika
