Help this 10-year-old girl so that she doesn't lose her leg !

Priya Banerjee, a 10-year-old girl, became a victim of a road accident along with her mother at around 6:30 a.m. on 23rd November 2016. A bus, while overtaking another, ran over their feet. Her mother is now almost out of danger but Priya’s right shin bone is seriously damaged. They received primary treatment in NRS Medical College, but the doctor recommended that she undergo Plastic Surgery to save her leg. Her mother, though out of danger, will need a plate in her leg before she can resume a normal life and thus, will be out of her livelihood for the next 3-4 months, at least.

A few words about Priya and her mother:

I was truly astonished when I first heard about Priya and her mother’s daily struggle. Priya’s mother works as domestic help in several households in Kolkata's Beliaghata locality. Her father died last year. They stay in a nearby slum area and travel to Beliaghata everyday at around 6 a.m in the morning. Priya accompanies her mother, carrying her school books, school dress and a spare dress in a bag. After a long hard day at work, they return home late in the evening. 

Right after the accident, Priya’s mother lost consciousness, but Priya was alert despite the blinding pain and she pleaded with the police – “Please take us to the hospital. Please take my mother's purse along or else we will starve”.

Please help this brave girl – she needs you now …

Dear All,

Apologies for this long wait. We got busy with few other patients.
Priya's operation was a great success and couple weeks earlier Priya got back home. Though as her mother is in the Hospital still, she is staying with her grandmother.  

Once Priya is back home, as advised by the surgeon,  proper special dressing was needed. We have been able to employ an experienced technician who did this dressing every alternative days. Day before yesterday, Priya was seen by the surgeon again and according to the surgeon the dressing done was just perfect - the setting of the bones are quite right. As such, he believes, Priya will be able to start walking pretty soon.
Though for that a small plastic support needs to be attached in Priya's leg. After that, using crutch, Priya should start to walk inside the house. It might pain initially, but she needs to ignore the pain. Knowing Priya, I am sure, she will overcome this small pain easily.

Back to Priya's mother - she is still in Hospital. But after the operation her condition is much better. Hopefully, she will be released from Hospital within few days.
and finally a big big thanks to you all ..
