I am fundraising to help my student Prabhat pay for his medical expenses

Help 12 Year old Prabhat with his medical emergency

Prabhat is a 12 year old boy who met with an accident on his way to school. A speeding truck crashed into him and as a result Prabhat suffers severe injuries to both legs.

He is currently in the ICU and has already undergone 2 operations. The doctors say that he has at least another 2 more to go.

The total hospital bill will amount to a minimum of 6 lakhs.

The family is already going through a lot of mental trauma. To add to that, they have huge hospital bills to pay. The father is the only earning member of the family. His salary amounts to Rs 10,000/- a month, which is just enough to make ends meet.

No amount is too small. Kindly contribute whatever is possible to make a difference in his life. Help the struggling child stand on his feet again!

Dear Supporters, 

We have a good update for you on Prabhat’s health. 

Prabhat has started walking again. His doctors had not expected him to start walking this early, but he has been showing good signs of progress. 

Since one of his legs is shorter than the other, he has to undergo a regenerative correctionve surgery in a few months. Post that, Prabhat is expected to regain complete movement in both his legs. 

He is not fit enough to go to school, but Anne Viegas, his teacher and champion, informs us that he is keeping himself engaged. His friends come to visit him and play games with him at home. He reads books and tries to keep up with his studies. His family and friends are more than happy to supply him with new reading material every week. 

It is worth noteing that it was Viegas’ involvement in her students’ lives that alerted her to Prabhat’s condition, allowing her to seek immediate help for him. 

She sheds some light on the importance of teachers paying attention to their students’ lives beyond the classroom thus, “As a Teach For India (TFI) Fellow, most of my students come from low -income backgrounds. Their parents are generally occupied all day with hard labour work to keep track of every aspect of their children’s lives. In Prabhat’s case, his parents were attentive, but this may not always be the case. Hence, it is important for teachers to keep an eye out for his/her students’ well-being beyond academics.” 

It was Viegas and her co-teacher who sought help for Prabhat from the hospital. It would have taken him longer to recover without their help. 

Viegas and Prabhat’s family have thanked you for your support. 

Thank you.
