Story

Who we are?
We represent Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Yenigadale Alumni Association.

What are we raising funds for?
We are raising funds to support 20 year old girl, Likita G, to undergo kidney transplant in Bangalore. She is suffering from bilateral kidney failure. 

In January 2017, she was diagnosed with Bilateral Renal Failure at Aster Hospital, Bangalore.
Since then she is undergoing dialysis three times a week. Dialysis, along with other investigations, costs her Rs 25,000 per month. 

She needs to undergo a Kidney Transplant to lead a normal life. Fortunately, her mother has been found a match for the donor kidney. 

Aster CMI has quoted Rs 6 lakhs for surgery that includes pre-evaluation investigations, surgery for the donor and the recipient, hospital stay and medicine  till  discharge.  After the  surgery  she  has  to  take  medication  all over  her  life.  The  cost  of medicine will be around Rs. 20,000 per month. 

Likita  comes  from  a  very poor  family.  Her  father,  Gangappa, is an agriculturalist  and  his  income is hardly sufficient to manage his house hold expenses and education of his three children. He has already spent Rs 3,00,000 since she was diagnosed with kidney failure.

Which Hospital?

We have reached out to other hospitals such as Narayana Hrudayalaya, JSS in Mysore, Vydehi hospital, MS Ramaiah Memorial Hospital, Victoria, Columbia Asia, Manipal Hospital.

Many of the hospitals were found to be expensive and not affordable to someone of his economic status. After  consulting  many  hospitals, physicians,  alumni  and  finally  taking her family’s  opinion,  we  have decided to  take  her  to  Narayana Hrudayalaya (NH). It is one of the leading hospitals in solid organ transplant rate, affordable, transparent and has high success rate in transplants.

Below is the cost of surgery at NH.
  1. Pre-evaluation tests: Rs 100,000
  2. Surgery, hospital stay for donor and recipient: Rs 400,000
  3. Medicine cost during surgery and stay” Rs 100,000
  4. Cost of medicine for 2 years: Rs 200,000
Total: Rs 800,000
