This Father Starved Himself For Days To Save His Baby Daughter

"They say that a man in need would do anything, but what if you really need to save your baby daughter's life, and you don't have the means to give what it takes to do so?" 5-year-old Pavithra’s father Chinna is helpless when he asks out loud.

We could never guess why she was falling ill:

“Pavithra is my first baby. When she was just 3-months-old, she started falling ill. We took her to a nearby hospital. Here, they told us there was a possibility of a heart problem. I refused to believe it. A life-threatening disease, and that too my child! I immediately took her to another hospital.”
It was finally confirmed. Pavithra had a hole in her heart. It did not end there. The family was referred to yet another hospital with better facilities, for treatment.
"I will never forget that image the doctor showed me on the screen. My little one lay there looking up at me to understand what the problem was, and I could clearly see the hole in her heart. If I broke, so would she. I had to stop breathing to stop myself from crying."

The struggle:

Like all other parents, Chinna also wanted to save his daughter’s life. Chinna and his wife are both daily wage workers and collectively earn Rs. 300 a day when they both find work.
“The past few months have been extremely tough. Running around to and from the hospital, we both have not gone to work. The household income is zero. I have another baby to feed as well. He is hardly 2. I really don’t know if I will ever lead a normal life again.”

Why you should help:

A few days back, Pavithra’s condition became very critical and she was rushed to the hospital. To save her life, the doctors immediately performed a cardiac-repair surgery. The little one’s life was saved.
However, after spending 8-9 days in the hospital, her parents have no money to settle the hospital bills or start life again

A little help on your end could help Chinna and his family settle their bills and take little Pavithra home to a healthier, happier life.
