He has been diagnosed with something called as autoimmune etiology. This is where the immune system of our body attacks itself. He is under breathing support and needs to be under constant observation.
Sachin has been put in ICU so his condition can be closely monitored. He has been having seizures and even went into a coma. He has not returned to normal yet. “Sachin is awake and opens his eyes but he doesn't see anyone. He can't speak yet and I don't know if he even wants to speak. Doctors tell us that it will take some time before he is normal,” Anjana explains.
Sachin is barely a shadow of what he is. A talkative, naughty child – he was the imp of the family. He and his older sister Megha are very close and often backed each other up in front of their parents. Sachin's school friends too regularly call Anjana asking to talk to him – but they are denied.
What scares Anjana and Chandra more is that they still don't know what is wrong with Sachin or how long it will take for him to recover. Anjana earns Rs 4,000 per month and Chandra earns Rs 150 per day depending on when he is able to find some work. Keeping a child in ICU is expensive and their borrowed funds will soon run out.
Anjana and Chandra have both never gone to school. They wanted to give their son and daughter a good life and an education. Unfortunately, their elder daughter was born with one short leg and now, Sachin is fighting for his life. Over and over, they keep asking themselves what more they should have for their children.
Sachin's mother is an anganwadi worker and father works as a loader at a travel agency. Both of them earn around Rs 4350/- a month.
Please help Sachin live.
