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 …

Sorry again for a late update on Priya and her mother. Too many complex cases are coming up !!! But that's not an excuse.
First, great news again. Priya and Priya's mother both are back in home after very successful surgeries. Again the doctors and the team did miracle. We will be forever grateful to them.  
After being back to home, Priya had gone through extensive dressing and regular visits to the doctor. (all was possible due to your generous support). The wound healed pretty quickly and now Priya is walking with a crutch. We are very hopeful that within few days she will be able to walk without crutch as she is quite eager to go back to school. Good thing is her school and her school friends are providing all support during her absence with notes, books etc. !!!.
The only small kink is, though Priya's mother's wound was really not that serious, but may be due to her age, the wound is taking a while to get cured quickly like Priya. She has to have a small implant in her foot and continued dressing. As such we will need your continued support and prayer.
And a promise - I will be more regular in providing updates.  I just hope, we had more than 24 hrs in a day and better health infrastructure !!!
