    This fundraiser will benefit

    Jugal Pakhira

    from Bangalore, Karnataka

Jugal is a 55-year-old day laborer hailing from Medinipur (Midnapore) West Bengal.
Jugal used to earn a meager wage of 100 to 120 Rs per day before being advised to urgently undergo open heart surgery. He is currently supported by his 3 sons in laws and they have managed to arrange 1.5 lakhs somehow. However, They still need support to raise rest of the funds and get the surgery done urgently.
3 months ago Jugal suffered from a high fever which lasted for a month. The fever resulted in excessive weight loss and made him extremely weak. The Diagnosis indicated that he would urgently need a valve replacement and have to undergo an urgent open heart surgery.

"Nobody becomes a construction worker by choice," says Jugal.
Jugal for the most part of his life has worked on construction sites and the only thing he knows is to mix sand and concrete and build houses. However, he failed to earn enough money to build his own house.
Owing to the poor financial condition of his family, he was forced to become a construction worker at a young age of 12.

The only reason why he is getting operated is because it is stopping him to go to work. "Heart Surgery is last of my worries I need money to ensure  my wife and I have a better life once we grow old," says Jugal. His condition restricts him from lifting heavy weight and also prevents him from climbing stairs.
Jugal understands the surgery is a high-risk operation though he still wants to get it done and resume his work.

Why should you contribute?

Jugal's surgery would cost 3 lakhs, 1.5 lakhs have been already arranged by his son in laws as a loan from friends and well-wishers. However, they are falling short of 1.5 lakh rupees and need support from all of us.

Your contribution will help give a new life to someone who is fighting hard for his survival with limited resources.
