Satwik Das, a 1-year-old baby from Kolkata, needs a liver transplant. Suffering from Biliary Artesia, his liver is very damaged. In just one year, he has had two surgeries due to his condition. His father Sushanto is the sole breadwinner of the family and he does not have funds for the liver transplant that Satwik needs.
Satwik has BiliaryArtesia – a condition in which the bile produced by the liver isnot stored in the bile duct but stays in the liver – causingpainful damage to the organ. Diagnosed when he was just a month old, Satwik underwent surgeries in June and October 2016, but they did not help his condition. Only a liver transplant can save Satwik.
Now, Satwik is a joyful baby delighting in saying his first words and learning to walk. “He has started speaking his first works and is growing. His happiness only makes us more determined that we somehow save him. He an innocent baby who deserves to live,”
says his father Sushanto.
Satwik is his mother's whole world
Satwik's mother Sikta lost both her parents a few years back. Today, she really misses both her parents who could have shown her how to take care of her baby. Because Satwik is really sick, she wishes they were around to help her deal with it. She will donate a part of her own liver so Satwik can get better.
Sushanto has no savings left to treat his baby
Sushanto and Sikta were married in February 2015 and Satwik is their first child born in May last year. Sushanto works at a private company and Sikta is a housewife. Till recently, Sushanto made less than Rs 20,000 per month and already all his savings are spent on Satwik's treatment.
