    This fundraiser will benefit

    Debaki Nayak

    from Cuttack, Odisha

Devaki had a paralytic attack and was non-responsive for one week in January 2017, she was rushed to the hospital in Hyderabad for treatment but unfortunately the doctors were not very responsive in providing help due to poverty. The little money the family had was paid for some of the medical tests and hospital care. I was heartbroken to hear this sad news from my family in India and started this fundraiser campaign to support Devaki with all the medical help she needs. People have been kind enough to donate for this good cause. Currently Devaki is undergoing treatment in her home town Orissa and she has been diagnosed in Feb 2017 with Bell’s palsy, Tuberculosis and Meningitis which is a very rare case.

Devaki is 43 years old and is mother of 4 young children. The family has already lost their eldest daughter due to fatal disease, cancer. She had been a homemaker. Her husband Bhagyadhar is a daily wage gardener. This family makes a total income (Approximately Rs 7000) has now been devastated because of Devaki’s medical situation. Since Devaki husband and kids are currently with her in Orissa, his current employer is not paying him since he is daily wage gardener. They barely are making ends meet. She needs immediate medical attention but her family is unable to provide even the basic medical help due to lack of money. Doctors are further evaluating her for cancer. She is going for CT- Thorax and other MRI to rule anything else.

Treatment is available for Devaki’s medical condition, but the cost of the treatment is too high for the family, and without immediate medical attention Meningitis almost always gets fatal. Without any assistance from the government, Devaki’s family is now praying for the mercy of god to make her feel better.
