Help 10 year old Shivakumar fight Meningitis and its complications.

Every child is a little bundle of joy for his/her parents. But not everyone is fortunate enough to experience it incessantly. Shivakumar, a young lad of 10, is fighting for his life in the hospital, as his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Pakkirappa are battling against their monetary hardships, to provide for their child’s treatment.
He was diagnosed with Tubercular Meningitis, and now its sequelae Hydrocephalus and Arachnoiditis, both of which require immediate medical attention in the form of surgery, which will cost them a huge sum of money.
A family of 5 (the parents, and their 3 kids) and bearing low socio- economic status from Ballari, with a combined monthly income Rs 4,500- 5,000, it’s difficult for them to feed their children’s mouths every day. With both the parents being daily wage workers, it is an arduous task for them to raise such a huge amount for the surgery. They’ve already availed a loan of Rs. 30,000 which can be used to pay only a small part of the bill. The child requires surgery as soon as possible in order to survive. But it requires a sum of Rs 2,00,000 to be paid.
Hydrocephalus, in which there is accumulation of CSF within brain leading to increased pressure inside the skull, and Arachnoiditis, wherein there is inflammation of arachnoid mater, that protects the brain and the spinal cord. If not treated, it can lead to loss of sensations, paralysis, and mental impairment.
This child is currently admitted in the Kasturba Hospital, Manipal under constant monitoring.
Please help us raise funds to support this child and his family. Your small help can make a huge difference in someone’s life.

Dear Supporters,

Here is an update for you.

Social Welfare Committee (KMC Manipal) would like to thank you for the overwhelming support and contribution towards this noble cause. The treating doctor, Dr. Pushpa G. Kini (Professor and HOU, Department of Paediatrics, KMC Manipal) has informed us that Shivakumar's cerebrospinal fluid levels are being monitored. He will undergo a surgical procedure (Ventriculo-Peritoneal Shunt) as soon as the CSF level dips down to normal.

Thank you so much for the love and support.
