80G tax benefits for INR donations

Every contribution towards Nijin's liver transplant is matched 100% by our Impact Partner, The Pravin Agarwal Fund. So every rupee becomes two, thereby helping us reach the need faster.

32-year-old Nijin is suffering from liver cirrhosis and needs an immediate liver transplant. Nijin and his wife Rinu are struggling to arrange funds for his transplant. They have a 1-year-old son. Nijin used to work as a social worker before he was diagnosed with this condition.

His wife has come forward to donate her liver.
Nijin's wife, Rinu, has come forward to donate a portion of her liver to save him. Rinu works as a nurse and is the only earning member of the family now. She has been managing Nijin's treatment expenses for so long and has the responsibility of taking care of their son.
Nijin needs an urgent liver transplant

It was 2 years ago that Nijin was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis. It came as a shock to the family. 

"He used to fall ill frequently and had a fever. Doctors first thought it was dengue but even after medications, he didn't recover. He underwent a lot of tests and we finally knew his liver was affected. He had no unhealthy habits that would lead to this condition. He had suffered from jaundice when he was a child but he didn't undergo proper treatment and was not completely cured", says Rinu

Nijin is undergoing treatment at Aster Medcity Hopsital in Kochi where Rinu works as a nurse. Doctors who know Rinu have come together to help this couple. The hospital has also brought down the cost of surgery to 16 lakhs to help them.
Rinu has managed to arrange 5-6 lakhs from her relatives and friends but is in need of 10 lakhs for the liver transplant.

Matching your donations

A generous donor has committed to a significant amount and is also matching all donations made by donors on Milaap.  So every rupee becomes two, thereby helping us reach the need faster. 100% of your donations will go towards the treatment and surgery.
