Asha was born in 2011 to a family of 5. Her father, Umesh Das, has a temporary job as a mason (raj-mistri) and works in the beleghata area in Kolkata. He is the ONLY earning member in the family. The family lives in their ancestral village of Mattihari in the Dumka district of Jharkhand. 7-year old Asha studies in class I in Mattihari School. She was recently diagnosed with a congenital heart disease and needs to undergo an open heart surgery very soon. The estimated cost of the procedure is nearly 2.25Lakh. It is impossible for her family, with her father as the single earning member with a temporary job and two younger brothers to care for, to raise this amount. Please come forward with your generous support.
