I am fundraising to help Bonty Dutta get back her life

My maternal cousin sister met with an accident on 19th June, 2015. She was travelling from Assam to Arunachal Pradesh on one of the Assam State Transport Corporation Bus when a live electric post fell on the bus due to the driver's sheer negligence and greed for money. In order to make few extra bucks he took some money from the movers and packers guys and loaded the luggage over the bus's carrier which in turn pulled down the electric post. The driver and the conductor ran away and the rest 20 passengers were electrocuted. One passenger died on the spot and the other passed away while being taken to Chapakhuwa hospital in Aunachal Pradesh.

My sister's is the only survivor who has sustaned major 3rd degree burns.The entire left side of her body is burnt and she has major 2nd to 3rd degree burns. She is currently undergoing treatment in Dibrugarh Medical College in the department of plastic surgery amd Dr U.K Bordoloi is the doctor in-charge. We are trying to move her to a private hospital but the costs are ridiculously high and she doesn't have an insurance. She is 23 and is currently doing her masters from Indira Gandhi Government College. ASTC has taken no responsibility and washed their hands after giving them ten thousand rupees. We are trying to do our best to pay for her treatment butl her case is a bit serious hence the treatment fees is quite high and she will definitely need multiple plastic surgery. She comes from a humble background and according to her education was her only answer to a better future but all her dreams were shattered after this accident. Everyday she asks her father if she is going to make it!

Every penny counts and we firmly believe that No one should have to chose between food, education and  quality healthcare. Bonty Dutta has the right to live and she is fighting it out everyday. We need your support to raise money for her treatment and rehabilitation. Every penny and every prayer counts. So please help us !

You can also feel free to make a bank transfer as that money goes directly to the victim's family to buy medicines. We have been getting a lot of facebook messages and our friends and their relatives are very keen on making bank transfer as somf of them aren't able to pay here.

4th June 2017
I hope you're well! Firstly I would like to apologise for not being able to send an update as frequently as I wished.
I had some personal work and I finally took a holiday last year after 5 long years. Thank you Abhinav for constantly telling me to take that holiday! I met one of my dear friends and one of our dear donors while I was traveling to Scotland. She very kindly sent a card for Bonty and Bonty was chuffed to bits.
So you might ask why did it take so long though I was back from my holiday last august-september, well the answer is a bit sensitive. Bonty was a bit vulnerable, she broke up with her boyfriend. The guy didn't want to be with a burn victim. So she was taking care of the situation still trying to be strong but couple of weeks ago I did have a long talk with her and told her that everyone comes to our life for some reason. Her bf stood by her like a rock when she was in hospital and nursed her to good health so may be that was his role and he did play a vital role. Now his role was over and Bonty needs to thank him and let him get on with his life. She did quietly listen but I am sure she is still hurt but she will be over it.
Honestly, she walked out of the hospital when the doctor had given her just 7 days to live so I am sure she will come out of this as well. She has gone back to Arunachal Pradesh and has joined back college. She is keen on completing her MA . She also teaches kids during the weekend ! She is coming to Assam in the next 3-4 weeks to see the doctor. She still has no sensation on her left leg but we're positive that she will get better soon!
I have attached a small video- there are no graphic images whatsoever. Do have a look! You will be soo happy.
God bless! Have  a lovely sunday.
