Story

Yusuf Alam, aged about 4 years, son of our dear friend, Intakhab Alam, was detected with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (a form of blood cancer) in October 2017 and is undergoing treatment since then at the Saroj Gupta Cancer Centre & Research Institute, Kolkata. Intakhab's family consists of his wife, one daughter and son. He earns his livelihood by driving commercial vehicles – he is currently unemployed, due to the time being spent on his child and the treatment. He, being the sole earning member of his family, is facing acute financial crisis to meet both ends meet owing to the huge medical expenses for his son’s treatment as well as taking care of his family. We, as his childhood friends, are trying our best to help him by raising funds on a regular basis, as we are his only source of financial assistance. Till date, we have raised funds to the tune of Rs.150,000/- for the initial rounds of treatment and are targeting another Rs.150,000/- within us, but considering the duration and rising expenses of the treatment, the child and our friend’s family would be greatly benefited, if additional financial aid could be raised for him.

 At the present moment, we are looking to raise Rs.400,000/- within the next 2 months, to take care of the remaining rounds of chemotherapy treatment and associated medicines to help the child and the family, in their hour of need, besides asking for all your blessings and good wishes for the family, as this would be essential to sustain them. So would request you to start helping at the earliest and sharing this as much as possible in your networks.
