Pawan is only 8 years old, he was born to a poor couple Prahlad Sahay and Maya Devi based in Jaipur, Rajasthan. Prahlad, Pawan's father, is working in a laundry shop and is the breadwinner of the family earning Rs.5000 a month and only just manages to support his family.
Early on after Pawan was born, at just 5 months of age, he was suffering from high heartbeat, this worried his parents who took him to a government hospital in Jaipur. Upon reaching they were told that they need to take an 'Echo Test' and an X-Ray and they took them both. After the evaluation of the Echo test, it was revealed that the child had a problem in his heart.
The doctor prescribed them some medicine and advised them to
continue the medicine. He said that he can only be operated when he is at least 8 years of age. So, the parents continued the medicine. At
the age of 7 years, Pawan was vomiting blood excessively. This led to his parents rushing him to the hospital, they took another Echo test and awaited the results. After the detailed evaluation of the 'Echo test', they were informed that he had a heart problem and he needed surgery as soon as possible. Due to their financial constraint, they found the cost of the surgery too overwhelming, so they returned home defeated. the shop in which Prahlad worked in also catered to a person who was an NGO volunteer in Being Human. He was aware of Prahlad's son's problem and advised him to go visit FMRI, Gurgaon and said he might be able to get the surgery done for a lower cost through Fortis CSR foundation. So, the parents took Pawan along to FMRI Gurgaon with their documents.
The doctor Shyamveer Singh Paediatric surgeon who is working at FMRI, Gurgaon analysed the reports and counselled the financial condition of the
parents and referred the child under Fortis CSR Foundation. They were again directed to an 'Echo test', this time it was revealed that Pawan needed ASD closure. The cost although greatly reduced is still a troublesome sum for the family. Due to his heart condition, he is not able to perform activities like a regular child. He is a class 3 student and has 2 siblings. DONATE TO MOVE THEIR FAMILY FROM HOLE TO WHOLE.
The family is looking forward to receiving support from you. We would appreciate it if you could help us fund this operation so that he can lead a normal life again.
