About the project :

Most children start their lives in their parents’ arms, with their love and care. But, unlike those lucky children my little Yug, started his life in the NICU, attached to a ventilator and on medications. He was born premature in October 2017 and instead of coming home he had to stay in the NICU for around 34 days.

He was so little, lay curled up, attached to tubes. In the hospital, I used to stand by his side for hours, watching his chest rise and fall as his little heart struggled to beat. The premature birth had caused a blockage in his heart which was slowing down its beating.

For the first few months, it was difficult to even feed him properly. Even a little milk would make him vomit. We kept praying that he would at least eat a little. He looked weaker with each passing day. His mother worried so much, she stopped eating too.

He required an urgent surgery to deal with the blockage but his body was too little and weak to handle it. The doctors advised us that we wait at least for 6 months before we get him the treatment he requires.  

When he was discharged, we could hardly hold him. We wrapped him in a warm cloth and took him home. The doctors asked us to keep his medications on, which would help him breathe. But for six long months, we’ve seen him cry with pain almost every second hour.

His treatment has cost me Rs. 4 lakhs so far. I have spent away all my savings and even borrowed money from my friends and relatives. I am a foot soldier in the Indian army and earn around Rs.15,000 each month with which I support my family.

The doctors have given me only 1 month to raise Rs. 2 lakhs to get him the surgery. Each day that we delay takes a toll on his little heart. I cannot gather the amount in the given time. Your help could give a new life to my only child.

Please contribute whatever you can and share my story with others through Facebook and Whatsapp. I will never forget your kindness.
