Help This Premature Baby Fight Respiratory Syndrome

Help these premature twins to survive
It was a moment of great joy when Mrs. Jyothi Shetty and Mr. Nagaraj Shetty got the news that she was pregnant. However, their happiness was shortlived when Jyothi gave birth to 32 weeks old premature girl baby who weighed 880g at birth. She was immediately taken to ICU where she was placed on the life-support ventilator for 10-12 weeks. The total treatment is estimated to cost Rs. 6 lakhs.
Hailing from a low-class community, the father is currently the only bread earner of the family with an income of around Rs.10,000/month. They have already availed various loans from banks, moneylenders and relatives, and so don’t have any source of money left for the treatment. The parents are struggling each and every day to gather enough money for their child’s survival with hopes and prayers, to get some aid.
The mother delivered premature twin babies (a boy and a girl) on 30/06/17 at 32 weeks (normal term babies are born at 36-40 weeks) with Respiratory Distress Syndrome (RDS). In this case, the lungs aren’t fully developed and the babies have difficulty in breathing. Due to extreme prematurity, they can’t feed orally, instead are given total parental nutrition (fluids supplied directly through blood vessels). Unfortunately, the boy baby failed to survive. The girl child is currently monitored closely by the doctors at Kasturba Hospital, Manipal.

How you can help?
The child has to stay in the hospital for 10-12 weeks till she reaches adequate body weight and good health. This will cost upto Rs. 6 lakh.
Money is the only barrier between life and death. We kindly request you to contribute to the same, through our fund-raiser.
Thank you!
