Please Help Us Save Prerna

Namraj, a Nepali caretaker is fighting with time and limited resources to save his daughter, Prerna from succumbing to brain fever, dengue/viral infection and liver damage.

Namraj arrived in India about 3 years ago, and supports a family consisting of 3 children, the eldest of whom is Prerna. In his time with us, he has been hardworking and extremely diligent: waking up at the crack of dawn to collect wet waste from all the flats, then cleaning cars. After that he starts working in the houses and his wife (Bhavna) does cleaning in different houses, until the evening when he starts cleaning the compound and works on upkeeping the apartment overall.  

Prerna, his daughter got married earlier this year and is currently 5 months pregnant, and contracted fever earlier this week. It was initially suspected to be typhoid, and upon further checks the doctors at a local hospital confirmed it was dengue. Her condition has deteriorated along this week, and on Thursday they were advised to move Prerna to an ICU.

As of Saturday evening, they have checked with various government hospitals in Bangalore ranging from Victoria Hospital, Bowring Hospital, Ramaiah Hospital amongst others only to find rejection because of their low-income status and complicated health issue. Other hospitals that have been ok with admission have asked up to 65,000 rupees per night in the ICU, which the family cannot afford. The family doesn’t own any means of transportation, barring a bicycle- and after having many doors shut, were finally able to admit Prerna at St John’s Hospital.

Enough said, they don’t have the money to support treatment. There is no option to not receive treatment, given her overall condition. We’re raising funds internally, within the apartment and are now requesting YOU, to help save Prerna by donating any amount to go towards her medical care.

We need your help, as they’ve gone through enough by themselves and we need to show them that there are enough of us who care about what happens to this family. We need your help, to help save the life of Prerna and her unborn child.

Thanks and Regards

Hello everyone,
My apologies for the late update. Just got a chance to meet Prerna and her father  when they visited our apartment for the first time today after her recovery. They said that she has recovered completely now and is under strict medication. Although there is still a bit of weakness, she is able to carry out her day to day chores and lead a normal life at the moment. She has been going to the St. John's hospital for her monthly check-ups and the doctors said that the health of the unborn baby is fine too.We would like to wholeheartedly appreciate and thank each one of you once again for all your support and generous contributions made by you for saving her life and making it big success. My sincere gratitude to the doctors of the St. John's hospital for all the efforts they have put in to ensure her smooth recovery. A big thank you to the Milaap team for offering us this platform to raise the funds and supporting us throughout that phase without which it would have been impossible for them to get through this ordeal. The surplus funds left with us after all the expenses we bore will be utilized in couple of months if any complications occur during the time of her delivery.Here we have some of her photographs taken today.

Hello All,

We are glad to let you know that Prerna's treatment is coming along pretty well. Yesterday, the doctors said that she is responding very well to the treatment. They will wean her off the ventilation today and she will be shifted from ICU to the ward in the next few days. Both Prerna and her unborn baby are a lot better now and she is also able to respond to people around her.

Thank you very much once again for all your contributions and continued support. Let's be optimistic and keep praying for her further recovery. Share it as much as possible with your folks around to raise more funds and be with the family until they are able to get through this tough phase completely.

Thank you.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for the wonderful support that you have shown towards Prerana. She was admitted to St. John's Hospital, Bangalore on 16/09/2018. Today is her 4th day in the ICU. Her condition remains to be very critical and the latest update about her health status is, the treatment of liver infection and brain infection are being currently carried out. Lately she has been diagnosed with a major lung infection too and the oxygen level has reduced too.

At this critical juncture, I would like to personally thank each one of you for your generous contribution and overwhelming support to help her get treated and help the family. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope she improves and gets better. I would also request you to please share this campaign further with your friends and family so that we can raise funds faster towards her treatment. 

Thank you.
