“One day Aarush had a high fever and the next thing we know, he was admitted in the hospital. He was diagnosed with dengue and gradually his… his organs also started to fail. My little boy is suffering so much and I am unable to stay strong to protect him, neither emotionally nor financially. I am losing him a little each day…” - Pradeep, father
Aarush is in a very critical condition. His liver and kidneys are failing. Without continuous support and PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit) treatment, he will not be able to make it.
“It’s been 8 days and my son hasn’t opened his eyes. He is such a happy kid, and his smile... I haven’t seen it in days. He is just lying there with all these machines attached to his body. I can’t help but cry looking at my little boy. He is 7 months old, just 7…” - Radhika, mother
He moved a little yesterday and that pumped a little life into us
Though for a brief movement, every day Radhika visits Aarush in the PICU while Pradeep watches him through the glass window. They both eagerly wait for their son to respond but the child has stayed still for the past 8 days.
“Yesterday he moved his arms and legs a little, but he still couldn’t open his eyes. That little movement was enough, though... it pumped a little life into us. I just want him to recover quick but how will we ever be able to bear such a huge amount?” - Pradeep
Even one day’s treatment cost is way more than one month’s salary
“I work as a salesman and what I earn is barely enough to manage the house. Who thought that something like this will happen? Even one day’s treatment cost is way more than my one month’s salary. Whatever I saved, I spent it all, and whatever I borrowed is gone too. But it is still not enough and I am all out of funds. Just a few days more and my son will be fine but… how will we get through these few days?” - Pradeep
Your contribution can save this little boy. Just a few days more in the ICU can save Aarush, save his life.
