Amar and Siya rushed their infant to the hospital when she was just 2 weeks old because she had caught pneumonia. Their doctor suspected that the baby girl might have a cardiac issue and wrote up an Echo after which he referred them to a cardiac surgeon. Sofiya was diagnosed with a hole in her heart. She needed an emergency surgery to repair the defect.
Now she has a second hole, and it needs to be fixed immediately
Back then, Sofiya had a VSD (Ventricular Septal Defect). She also has an ASD (Atrial Septal Defect), which is a hole between the two auricles of her heart. This hole needs to be closed now. If she does not have the surgery, she will have problems with breathing and growth.
How can you help
Amar works in housekeeping at Select Citywalk, Delhi, for Rs. 9000. Siya takes care of Sofiya. The couple decided that their daughter needs someone to watch her at all times. Now, they are out of avenues to fund this second surgery which is estimated to cost Rs. 2.75 Lakhs. Sofiya is a beautiful child, full of dreams. She does not know the gravity of what is happening.
She has a good heart, and with your support, we can keep it beating.
