Kids Supported

Shrishti

Shrishti, is the only child of Kavitha and Ram and only twenty days old. Shrishti was born in a Civil Hospital, in Thane. After birth the doctors noticed that the baby had a fast heartbeat. She was given medicines for three days and then discharged. When the baby was taken back home, she showed difficulty in taking a feed. The government doctor referred the parents to Jupiter Hospital for further investigations. An Echo was done which showed that the baby was having a large PDA (a hole in between Descending Aorta and Pulmonary Artery.) Generally PDA closes automatically in new-born children, but unfortunately for Shrishti, the hole did not close. The parents were counseled that the baby needs to undergo a procedure where in the hole needs to be closed. Ram is a farmer without any regular source of income. So, the doctors contacted us and with support from WPP India CSR Foundation we were able to provide this and ease the stress from the family's life. Shrishti's birth weight was 1.4 kg, and the procedure was a complex one considering this. We are happy that we were able to help and she was discharged in better health.

Mohini Mistry

Mohini Mistry, twelve years old from Maharashtra, is suffering from a heart disorder where the tricuspid valve between the right atrium and right ventricle are displaced from the original position. As a result of which, the right ventricle is enlarged and the muscles, weak. The tricuspid valve will be replaced and put back to its original position. The surgery took place in June, and was supported by us. Nilima, the mother and Gulab, the father have three children who are supported on Gulab’s salary of Rs 4000 per month, which he earns as a carpenter. They were naturally struggling to make ends meet, we were lucky to have stepped in to help give Mohini a chance at a healthy life.

Baby of Sujisha

Baby of Sujisha, seven months old from Kerala, suffering from a heart disorder has been prescribed a Bidirectional Glenn, a surgical procedure at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, in Kochi. The baby’s father Mahesh, is a daily wage labourer and earns Rs 3000 per month. It is naturally impossible for him to get together the funds required for surgery, and has approached us for support which we are dedicated in providing.

Vasigaran

Vasigaran is three years old and the second child born to Silambarasan and Kalairasai. They belong to Cuddalore district in Tamil Nadu. He was born with a complex heart problem, Tetralogy of Fallot with multiple MAPCAS and severe Pulmonary Stenosis (narrowing of Pulmonary Valve). Vasigaran was kept at the government hospital for 15 days when doctors noticed that he was turning blue, had breathing problems and difficulty in taking feed. Both parents were naturally heartbroken to know that their son had been diagnosed with a heart disorder. They ran from hospital to hospital, in search for answers. Everywhere they went the same consensus was made – surgery was the only option to save the child. Silambarasan works hard as a farmer and brings home Rs 5000 per month, the cost of surgery was in no way anything he could afford. As a parent one can imagine how stuck they may have felt, as their son’s health was deteriorating and they couldn’t figure out how to come up with the funds required to save him. Vasigaran couldn’t speak anymore and wasn’t even in a position where he could walk. The parents took him to an outreach program that was being conducted in Cuddalore itself by doctors from Miot Hospital. The family were asked to bring him to Chennai for a more detailed examination. With great difficulty, they managed to reach and a clear diagnosis was made along with the prescribed surgery – an Angiography followed by Total Correction with insertion of a conduit from the right ventricule to the pulmonary valve. With the support from our CSR partner, WPP India CSR Foundation we have been able to support Vasigaran’s surgery.

Fathima Haza

Fathima Haza, six months old from Kerala has been diagnosed with a heart disorder called a Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) and requires a surgical closure at Amrita Hospital, in Kochi. Her father Abdhul Sathar is a salesman and earns Rs 4600 per month. She is the only child to both him and his wife Murshida and with this monthly income they are naturally unable to afford the cost of surgery to save their daughters life. We have committed ourselves in raising the funds required to save Fathima’s life.
