On that unfortunate day of May 2017, there was a Power Failure for a long time and hence lantern kind of emergency light was set up at home. Suddenly the thunder storm and lightning started and that lantern type support light fell down on the child who was standing there by chance. It caught fire on his shirt so wildly that his shirt was just stuck on his body though his family tried all means to extinguish the fire at that moment. This resulted into severe burn injury on his left hand and left side of the upper body.
The family did rush the child immediately to some nearby hospital and his treatment got started as per the facilities available there in village. The initial few days and months treatment didn't relieve the child from the painful traumatic effects of the burns. So the family consulted all available doctors in each and every government / private hospital there, but no substantial effect observed till date from the provided treatment on the scar patches resulting from the burns as time has passed.
Even after 2 years of the accident, he gets fresh wounds and blisters on and off on the scars. Since then, the child has not gone to school because of ongoing treatment and chronic pain persisting throughout the day and night. In all, his childhood memories are full of pain and daily struggle to cope up with this situation along with the family.
About the financial health of the family, his father is a daily contractual labourer doing plumbing tasks and his mother is struggling hard in raising him and 2 sisters and supporting the finances by doing household chores daily in 8-10 houses in Ahmedabad now. The family has relocated to Ahmedabad in Gujarat since a year.
Ajay's mother got acquainted with me and my family in January 2019 as she became a household helper for our family. We decided to help the child and get him cured and visited several doctors in civil hospital as well as private, with the child, Ajay. We decided on a plastic surgeon, Dr. Devesh Mehta, who is genuine and willing to help Ajay. The doctor explained to us that the exact costing for multiple surgeries of Skin grafting will be around Rs. 3,00,000. He clarified that he can't take skin from Hip area in one go and graft it in entire hand first and then in trunk region scars but will have to do several sittings, say 7-8 sessions, by focusing on particular areas of hand and trunk region for grafting surgery. This cost encompasses of OPD charges and hospital stay, dressings for many days after surgeries, pressure garments and shoulder splint required as support in post care for perfect healing and recovery of the treated area(s). The Doctor has advised to start Ajay's treatment from mid June.
