    Priya Banerjee

    from Kolkata, West Bengal

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 …
