1-Month Old Born After Long Wait Will Turn Blind, Needs Urgent Help

For 11 years, Sonali and Abhijit had been eagerly waiting for a baby. All they could do in these years was curse their fate for not being able to have a child of their own. They did not have money to try any artificial methods such as IVF. But now when they finally have a child, they are not even in a position to celebrate. Sonali’s 1-month-old baby boy was born prematurely in the seventh month. After struggling to survive in the ICU for a month, the parents found that their baby might never be able to even see her parents due to a fatal disease. He might become blind without the treatment.


The baby suffered a hemorrhage in both his retinas and needs laser treatment

Sonali’s little baby has a fatal disease that occurs in premature babies and leads to blindness. This disease is called aggressive posterior retinopathy of prematurity. The baby suffered a hemorrhage in both his retinas soon after he was born. If left untreated, the child will become blind. The newborn has already undergone 2 laser sessions and will need another one to ensure that he doesn’t become blind forever.

Soon after the baby was born, the parents had to run from one hospital to another

These first-time parents are very distressed. Soon after their baby’s birth, the parents had to run from one hospital to another, to make sure their premature baby is fine. But even after back and forth for almost month, they are still struggling to save their baby from becoming blind. 



Abhijit repairs chimneys in his hometown in Naktala, West Bengal. With the increasing competition, he can’t earn beyond Rs 4000 a month. He has spent a total of Rs 3.5 lakhs. He has borrowed from his friends and relatives and spent his years of savings for his baby. Now even arranging Rs 40,000 is just impossible for him.

How you can help

After 11 long years of waiting, Sonali and Abhijit’s premature baby is born with a disease that can make him blind. The baby needs a third laser treatment so that he doesn’t slip in complete darkness. Abhijit has spent his lifelong savings and has borrowed from his friends and relatives for his baby. He needs help to save his baby.
