Why: We need money for my father's heart operation in a good, private hospital
How much : Roughly INR 6 lakhs
I am Sweta Kumari, a Young India Fellow from the Class of 2016.
Family and friends tried to convince him to remarry, but he strongly refused, saying his life now surrounded his children. Dad stayed back in our home which is located in a small village in Jharkhand, managed his own food, worked in our shop as a watch mechanic, but never let any of his worries be a hurdle in our education. It was him, who against all the odds and family opposition, stood strongly for me and let me move to Bangladesh, all alone at the age of 16, so that I could peruse higher education. Neighbours suggested to him, “She is your only daughter. Why are you sending her away? Who will cook for you or take care of you?” Dad said, “I do not own her, and if she has managed a scholarship solely on her merit, who am I to stop her?”
This is a humble appeal to all of you to come forward and help save my father’s life. We don’t have the financial resources to afford this expensive heart operation right now and any delay will further worsen his condition.
Dad has been diagnosed with a critical heart disease and needs a double valve replacement. Two of his heart valves need complete replacement while the third one will be repaired. It is going to be major surgery and the operation risks are also high. Only specialist heart surgeons can be trusted with this kind of surgery. He is my father, hence I am willing to take the risk and go forward with the operation in a private hospital. This advice came from all CTVS (Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgeons) from hospitals like G B Pant Hospital, Medanta, Escorts Fortis, Metro Heart Institute, and Jaypee Hospital, Noida.
We want to raise this money by September 5, 2016
My family is trying its best to raise as much money as it can within this short span of time. Rest, I am left with no option but to reach out to you. I am sure, your contribution and prayers will help Dad get well soon.
This strong hearted man is much needed, in the family as well in the society as a role model for fathers who sacrifice their lives for their children and shape them into good human beings and responsible citizens.
