Farmer Is Struggling To Save His Baby Daughter's Life

“My wife, Seema and I always wanted to have a girl. Our happiness knew no bounds when our prayers were finally heard. We were eager to take her home from the hospital but she fell ill. She underwent a heart surgery just weeks after birth. I had to beg and borrow from my relatives and finally when that wasn't enough, I had to take a loan by keeping our farm land for her treatment but she never got better. My baby is still fighting for her life- Neeraj, father

Despite undergoing a surgery, the baby's condition is in danger 

Neeraj and Seema’s baby girl was born with fused arteries and 2 big holes in the heart. Even her lungs were very weak. She needed a high-risk surgery before she turned 1 month. Without the surgery, she wouldn’t have survived. Seema and Neeraj were relieved when the doctors told them the surgery was successful but soon she developed infections and became critical.

I was happy when they told me that her surgery was successfully done and we can take our baby home soon. But fate had other plans for us. Now she has infections in her body that can kill her at any moment.”- Neeraj


Initially, doctors thought that antibiotics would make her better. But soon, they realized that the baby has recurring sepsis (severe infection in the body) and needs more time in the hospital. The little one’s immunity system is very weak now and she doesn’t have the strength to fight infections. If she doesn’t stay in the ICU, it will be very hard to save her.

Poor mother can’t stay with her daughter

Neeraj's wife, Seema underwent a surgery to get her uterus removed due to complications and is in no position to travel from their village which is 170 kilometers away from the hospital in Delhi. Despite being weak, Seema hasn't spent a single second worrying about herself. She longs to hold her baby but she cannot travel and needs rest. While Neeraj struggles to take care of the baby in the hospital, Seema has no option but to stay home with their 6-year-old elder son.

“Neeraj calls and tells me how she is doing. I don’t even know if my daughter will ever be able to come out of the hospital. I don’t know if my baby will ever be able to see the home that was ready to welcome her.”- Seema

Despite mortgaging his only piece of land, Neeraj can’t save his daughter

Neeraj’s income was dependent on the rains. But now he has no income. He had to mortgage the land and get money for his daughter's treatment after he exhausted everything he had and what he borrowed from relatives.  With no income, he is in neck-deep debt. Neeraj and Seema need another 14 lakhs to continue their daughter's critical treatment.

We had a small plot of land where we harvest rice, wheat, and sugarcane depending on the season. We had to mortgage that only piece of land we had. There’s no villager or relatives that we haven’t asked help from.There are lenders who keep coming and asking when we can pay them back. How can I explain to them that I have a baby daughter fighting for her life”- Neeraj

Dear Supporters,

This is with the reference to a patient baby of Seema month/F JHN000234458 was referred to JP Hospital from Meerut on a ventilator on 22 Jun 2018 with a respiratory infection. Her Diagnosis was confirmed as large VSD severe PAH with abnormal systemic and pulmonary venous drainage. She underwent hospital stay after the infection was covered with antibiotics on 26 Jun 2018. The patient had a prolonged recovery due to severe immune suppression, recurrent sepsis with pan-drug resistant organisms and severe left bronchomalacia. She was admitted at JP hospital from 22 Jun 2018 to 09 Oct 2019. And that she was treated at Dutt Nursing Home Moradabad up to 28 Dec 2018.
The child was nasal CAPAP with recovering systemic sepsis and based on the current situation was likely in hospital for two-three weeks unless she requires trach-cannulation again.
The current expenditure was 18 L and addition expenditure appx 10 L. Total expenditure towards 28 L.
After huge expenditure, I could not save the life of baby Seema. And this left me under a loan from different sources ie; relative, friends, near and dear, bank, etc.
Please help me out to recover from the loss.
Thanking you in anticipation.

Yours faithfully,
Neeraj Kumar

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for your continuous love and support.

Our baby has been discharged and is at home. She is much better now. We will be taking her to the hospital for regular check ups. We are still feeding her and giving her medicines through tubes.

The doctors say that until she gains around 4-5kgs weight, they will not be able to remove the tubes. They cannot remove the tubes now as she cannot eat and breathe at the same time, and she will have difficulty if the tubes are removed. Only when she gains weight the tubes can be removed.

Thank you all for your support.
