80G tax benefits for INR donations

15 year-old Anjali is diagnosed with acute liver failure and is in the ICU. She needs to undergo an urgent life saving liver transplantation.  Her mother, Smitha, has volunteered to be the donor and will donate a portion of her liver to save Anjali.

Smitha is a home maker and Anjali's father works in a workshop as  a mechanic. Anjali has an younger sibling. The family is from an underprivileged background and cannot afford the cost of the transplantation procedure.

An Excellent Student

Anjali is in class 11 and has an with excellent academic record.  She has a bright future and can continue her studies if she recovers well. Anjali is now admitted to Aster Medcity Hospital, Kochi. The estimation for the liver transplantation is Rs. 18 lakhs and this is a huge amount for the family to arrange in such a short time. The family and hospital has managed to mobilize Rs 9 Lakhs and is hoping to raise the remaining before the surgery which is expected to happen anytime in the next couple of days.

The Need for Immediate Transplant

Dr. Sonal Asthana (LinkedIn profile), her doctor and surgeon, who is also driving this fundraising effort says,
"Anjali has developed acute (also called fulminant) liver failure. This usually happens because of presumed viral infections and is more common during the monsoon. Children with acute live failure have multiple other system problems like mental confusion, brain swelling, kidney failure because of sudden toxin build up. Unlike kidney failure, we do not have effective dialysis machines for liver so the only treatment is a timely transplant. It is exactly as bad as it sounds - there is a risk of mortality if we miss our transplant window, which may be as small as 24-48 hours."

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. ​​​​

Your Help Will Make A Difference

The family is doing everything they could to arrange funds for the transplantation but they are unable to raise the whole amount. Time is running out as Anjali is waiting for her transplant. Your support will ensure Anjali can undergo the transplant as scheduled and she can be back  home fully recovered.
