    This fundraiser will benefit

    Bijoy Kumar Shaw

    from Kolkata, West Bengal

My Father has suffered many tragedies in life and it seems like there is no end to these things.

This is the third time that my father will be having leg surgery,for the person on the bike who hit my father didn't had the heart to stop and call an ambulance .
The surgeries before were unsuccessful due to lack of funds, and since I was only 14 years old I had no idea that organisations like "MILAAP" existed.
His hip is fractured(right leg) and the surgery (previous) only had screws which were holding the bone together.
The present scenario is the bones have seperated and the area around the hip has swollen.He is being given painkillers via injection at home till we gather some funds for surgery . His condition is worsening since the medication has affected his blood sugar and caused UTI(Urinary Tract Infection).
Why I am Here?
I am Vivek(son) ,and am here to raise this amount or even close to it ,for his surgery would cost around 3 lakhs minimum and my family has arranged 1.3 lakhs so far .
He has been released from our nearby hospital since they cannot perform the surgery and we have to take him to Kolkata. 
I am very sorry, if I cannot state our situation clearly, I am not thinking straight.This has happened at a time when I am about to graduate from JGEC and looking for a job. I had planned to care for his surgery as soon as i settled at my job,but seems like time is no friend of ours.

I have never cursed my lack of forming deep connections with my friends and relatives (introversion), because I believe that to have them at your side is a bigger support than anything.

I don't believe my cause is bigger than others here at MILAAP,
but I love my father and would request anyone who goes through this article to know that even if its a smaller cause in comparison,your help will save him and may even enable him to walk.
Thank You all for reading it till the end.
