They Waited 13Years For A Baby But Now Have Only One Month To Save Her

Parajika is 2-year-old baby who needs an urgent liver transplant. She has been so weakened that she has fallen down and suffered fractures twice. Her growth is stunted and her body could suffer permanent damage if she doesn't get the transplant within a month. Her father Shravan Kumar is a milkman and needs financial support to save Parajika.

“We waited over 10 years for a child – we know the value of its life”
Shravan and Sunanda did not have children for a long time. After 13 years, Sunanda finally became pregnant giving a new hope to the couple. Shravan, who runs a milk supply shop in a small village near Medak, hired an assistant so he could focus on his child. 

Sunanda always wanted a daughter. A daughter would connect with her and Shravan more deeply. She would make their home joyful and beautiful. Their happiness grew even more when they were told they were having twins. Parajika and Pawan were born on July 4, 2014, to Sunanda and Shravan.

Parajika was the weak baby. She was born with jaundice and took phototherapy right after birth. The parents went home and for the first few months, nothing spoilt their happiness. But by the time she was 3-months-old – they saw that Parajika's jaundice had still not subsided and that's when their nightmare began.

They took Parajika to the hospital. The 1.5 month-old baby was diagnosed with Biliary Artesia and was immediately hospitalised. The bile produced in her liver was damaging her liver instead of being stored in the duct. The doctors performed a small surgery to ease her condition, but it did not help.

Baby Parjika is now, two and half year old, suffering from BILLIARY ATRESA, Doctors suggested her for the liver transplantation for the permanent cure. The approximate cost for the said treatment expected to be Rs.16. lakhs (Hospital copy enclosed).The above diagnosis and said treatment was suggested about 6 months back till date we are continuing with the supporting treatment due to financial limitation for the liver transplantation.


Baby Parajika is very sick at the moment. Her stomach is distended and she isn't able to eat much

Despite the surgery being a success, the doctors told Sunanda and Shravan that a liver transplant needed to be performed as soon as possible. 

Parajika's growth has been marred by liver disease
Parajika is a growing baby, but all her growth has been affected by liver disease. While her natural instinct is to move and explore the world around Parajika doesn't know that her body is not ready. She has always been underweight. She started walking only after she turned two, and even when she manages to stand, she tends to fall. She has suffered two fractures so far.

Chronic jaundice has turned Parajika's eyes yellow
Sunanda and Shravan are facing the very real prospect of losing their long awaited 2-year-old baby. They have so far done everything they can think of to save her. Support them in saving their daughter today. 

As a parent Shravan's occupation is to supply milk to the households on daily basis and my wife is a home maker. With the limited economic resources we are managing our livelihood on a day to day basis.

By considering the family's economic condition few well wishers have supported for the said treatment. They were able to mobilize about 20% financial support from various sources. Help save Parajika through this Liver Transplant treatment to the maximum possible from your organization.

Dear All,

We have an update to share. As donors interest and feedback is of utmost importance to us and since a number of donors like you, have written in requesting their funds donated/raised to be transferred to Parajika's family. We have done just the same. Milaap has transferred an amount of Rs 7.1 Lakhs to the hospital for her bills. This was done in consultation and consent with the parents as well as the hospital.

We also have identified a little boy in need of a liver transplant. His name is Udbhav and he is a newborn with an underdeveloped liver. The family could not contain their joy when their son Udbhav was born. However, baby Udbhav has Biliary Atresia. His liver is still not matured and is failing. He underwent a liver transplant last year but developed severe infections post the treatment. Currently, he is admitted to the ICU at the Rainbow Hospital for his care. So far, he has been on medical management, but time's running out to save him as they are waiting in on raising funds.

Parajika's father has spoken to Udbhav's father Mr. Satya, and has requested we transfer the remaining funds under Parajika's name to Udbhav, in the name of Parajika's Memorial Fund. This has been mapped to Udbhav's campaign page here- https://milaap.org/fundraisers/help-baby-udbhav. Please do refer to the campaign page for further information.  

Let us keep Parajika in our prayers and bless Udbhav to help him fight this disease.  

Thank you all for all the love and support shown in such hard times for both the families.
Best,
Team Milaap

Dear All,

Parajika's condition grew more severe after being placed on the ventilator, where her infection persisted, and her lungs and kidneys began failing. Unfortunately, the family couldn't come forward as donors or find other matches, and it became clear there was no organ available for successful transplant

The team at Rainbow Hospital provided supportive care to Parajika with ventilation support for a while and the family was given to option to proceed with alternatives should they choose to. The family chose to go home. Parajika passed away at home on June 8th.

Thank you for all the love and support

Dear Supporters,
Here is an update on Parajika's health from Dr. Bachina at Rainbow Children's Hospital.

Parajika was being treated at Rainbow Hospital. She collapsed at home last week and was rushed to the hospital, and was immediately put on ventilator support.
Currently, she has been shifted to a government hospital to continue this supportive treatment there.

In the absence of a living donor for Parajika, it is only when she regains her strength and a suitable donor has been made available, will she be fit to undergo the Liver Transplant at Rainbow Hospital.

Thank you for coming forward to help her. She needs all the prayers and support to help here through these difficult times.

Regards,
Team Milaap.
