Not a day pass by when Satpal Ji doesn't find a quiet corner to cry for his daughter Poonam.
Poonam, who is just 12-year-old is suffering from APLASTIC ANAEMIA - "deficiency of all types of blood cell caused by the failure of bone marrow development" and is being treated at AIIMS Delhi. As per the doctors, Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplant is the only survival option left. Still, AIIMS doctors are treating her with special medicines and will be performing an HLA typing test in April to find possible donors.
Currently, Poonam is undergoing blood/platelets transfusion every week and requires 4-5 units of blood/platelets, which counts to 20-25 units every month. Cost per unit of blood is INR 800 and weekly cost of medicines is INR 2000. Satpal ji who is a daily wage worker earns not more than 8-10 K per month and continuously struggling to raise funds to save the life of his daughter.
SNEH Foundation has taken a plunge to save Poonam’s life. We request everyone to please come forward and contribute generously.SNEH Foundation is a volunteer driven NGO working on the critical aspects of chronic malnutrition, primary education and health in Pune and Delhi/NCR.
Please reach out to Avi Kumar Tiwari, SNEH Foundation POC at Gurgaon (9561129805 ) or call Satpal Ji (8053206234 ) for any queries.
Note: As of now we are initiating a fundraiser of INR 75000 for Poonam's regular medicines and cost of weekly blood transfusion and later hopefully if we can find a donor, Stem cells/BMT transplant would cost INR 10-15 Lakh. The campaign would be modified accordingly.
