My name is Rita, aged 35 originally from the village of Ibrampur in Goa. My father cultivates bananas and rears goats for a living. To make ends meet, I worked as a domestic help for few years before I married my husband Succor in 2007. Succor was employed as a driver to an Arab family in Kuwait. I live in Bhayandar, Mumbai with my two daughters, Marushka, 8 and 4.
On Nov 2016, Succor had a blackout whilst on driving duty and nearly had a fatal accident. His boss sent him back to India to have a medical check up. On Dec 2016, Succor collapsed whilst playing with the girls. We rushed him to the hospital and after many tests he was diagnosed with a brain aneurysms. In the months that followed, we have spent all our savings and even borrowed money to meet his treatment costs. His doctor has advised him to undergo 2 brain (minimally invasive) procedures, each costing approximately 4.5lakhs each. If he does not undergo the procedures, he could have a brain bleed anytime that could cause him to be paralysed or die. Succor is the only earning member of our family, and without him I will not be able to provide for, leave alone educate my daughters. I am also not in a position to borrow the money since I come from a very poor family. I cannot take loans either as Succor will not be able to return to his job in Kuwait and I will be caught in the debt trap for the rest of my life and that of my daughters. I am appealing to you to please help me raise the money to save my husband's life so that he can provide for me and our 2 young daughters.
