1-Year-Old Baby Who Accidentally Swallowed Cleaning Acid Needs Help

“Last week, we went to the housewarming of one of my friends. My 1-year-old daughter, Payal was playing with other children. Suddenly, I heard people screaming. I ran to my child and found her crying aloud and I could see that she was in pain. My wife, Yamni was lying unconscious next to her. I did not understand what had happened.  Shivers went down my spine when I heard that my baby accidentally swallowed cleaning acid that looked like water. At that very moment I thought I had lost her.”- Jairaj, Payal’s father.

The poisonous liquid had burnt the baby's food pipe

On the 20th of September, Jairaj was at his friend’s place with his family. After eating some sweets, little Payal felt very thirsty and was crying. Her mother just moved to take a glass of water. Suddenly, to everyone's shock, the little one somehow managed to get hold of the bottle next to her and gulped it in few seconds. Unfortunately, it was cleaning acid filled in a water bottle. Her food pipe was burnt instantly. 


“We somehow manage to reach the hospital before it was too late. Yet, the poison had reached halfway through her food pipe. I remember the doctor telling me if we were late even by an hour, we could have lost her. My wife was in utter shock for hours. She couldn't come in terms with the unfortunate incident."

Without ventilator support, little Payal might lose her life

The poisonous liquid have burnt the upper part of her food pipe. Little Payal was forced to throw up the liquid. There are burns in her food pipe now. She is on ventilator support with 5 tubes fitted in different parts of her body. Little Payal hasn’t gained consciousness. She needs ICU care to recover completely. 

“My wife has still not recovered from the trauma. She refuses to eat and she has not slept till now. No words can console her, she feels guilty and she is crying day and night. I wish we could just wake up to believe that all of this was a nightmare.”

Poor parents are struggling to save their baby and they feel completely helpless

Few years ago, Jairaj and Yamni came to Bangalore with the hope of having a better life. While they were staying in West Bengal, most of the days Jairaj couldn't manage to get work and Yamni had no work at all. After coming to Bangalore, Jairaj was working as a helper in a site and Yamni works as a domestic help. They were putting every rupee together to give their daughters a better life. The life that they had built over 2 years fell apart in a split second.

“Both of us earn around Rs 10,000 a month. We struggle to make our ends meet. In the last 8 days, I have almost spent Rs 80,000. I have exhausted all my savings and I borrowed it from my friends also. I don’t know when I'll able to repay them. Now arranging another Rs 8 lakhs is just impossible for me.”



“My daughter is very critical. She is fighting for every breath. I don’t understand what could such a small girl have done to deserve so much pain. It’s so difficult for my wife and me to sit and watch our little girl suffer. We do not have strength to console each other. I just wish that my daughter recovers soon."

Dear Donors

Payal is doing good but she's not able to consume food. She goes through endoscopy every month as per the doctor's advice and has to still visit the hospital for regular check-ups. Kindly keep sharing and supporting the campaign as my family is still in need of funds. Kindly keep her in your prayer and wish for her speedy recovery.

Thank you for all the love and support.

Dear Supporters,

I am overwhelmed with the love and support given to Payal.

She is presently at home and is doing better. She underwent her food pipe enlargement surgery a while ago and has started to eat better. However, the doctors aren't sure as she might require few more surgeries to completely recover. As of now, they are observing her improvement during regular check ups.

Thank you for the help. Please continue to share the campaign.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you all for your love and support.

Payal is doing better now, and she is at home. She still has problem eating because her food pipe is not completely recovered. We are feeding her mashed food but she vomits it out because it gets stuck and doesn't reach her stomach.

She will have to undergo another operation so the food pipe can be enlarged. The operation will probably take place in two to three weeks. She underwent an operation on her wind pipe a few weeks ago and is now able to breathe properly.

Do keep supporting her. Thank you all for your wishes and prayers.
