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,

Thanks to all of your generous contributions, Prabhat quickly got the help that was needed and this helped him to recover sooner. This meant that he didn't have to miss a year at school.

Prabhat answered his 10th grade board exams this summer. His results were just out. He scored 73.8%. :)

Just thought I'd share this exciting news with all of you.

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.

Today Prabhat celebrated his birthday at home. He was taken home a week back and he was really happy that he could be back home with his family in time for his birthday.
While he will take a while to walk, he has made really good progress! The grafting surgery was done successfully and his right leg has healed well. The left leg still needs a little more time to recover.
Prabhat and his full family are eternally grateful to all of you for your donations and your prayers. His mother says that she gave him his first life, but all of you have given him a second life.
