Support Charles

"Charles Naveen David is a father of two babies who were born in 25 weeks. The couple was born with triplets but they lost one within days of its birth. Having born at 25 weeks, the new borns had multiple medical conditions and have struggled for their survival since then. 

Charles and his family have been at Cloudnine Hospital, Old Airport Road, Bangalore. Their bills had touched 33 lakhs. He managed to pay 8 lakhs by loaning the amount from his brother in law but also expressed his inability to pay any further to the hospital authorities. Post the discussions with the management, the outstanding amount stood at 16 lakhs. 

While the hospital discharged the baby boy on 9 Mar 2016 but the baby girl is not in a state to be discharged. She continues to be on food pipe (rice tube) due to her medical condition and will also be operated again in few months for her stroma (intestine) that needs to be placed back. 

Charles is sole bread winner of the family. Financially, he is all the twins have  with no support from either relatives or anyone in his network. I will keep the donors updates with regular updates of both these twins.

Request you to please step forward and support Charles and his babies to live a life that these little ones deserve after having fought death so many a times in the last 5 months. Here is your chance to be closer to God."

Dear Supporters

Vasanthi's and Charles's daughter, Kanishka, underwent a colostomy closure successfully on the third week of October at Cloudnine hospital. She had not been able to pass stools all these months. Thanks to the surgery, she is now able to do so. For a few days before and after the operation, she was on a liquid diet. She took a week to recover from the operation. She has lost a little weight in the process.

Kanishka is still being fed via a ryles tube and this will continue for a few months till doctor says so. Only now, her diet has now started to include rice, dal and milk. She was discharged from the hospital on October 30, and is now healthier than ever. But she still has to be taken to the hospital regularly for periodic check-ups. 

The couple’s son, Anthony, has not needed any operations after the last one in May and is healthy ever since. Kanishka and Anthony celebrated their first birthday on October 12. Let’s pray that Kanishka recovers completely over the next few months.

Here is a photo of the twins along with Major Aditi, the campaign's champion, from the Baptism last month.
