I hope you & your families are safe!
My name is Naman and I am from Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, India. I am starting this fundraiser to raise funds for the treatment of my dad (Anil Arora), mom (Poonam Arora) and younger sister (Nainika Arora). They all got infected with covid in April end and are under critical care since then (14 days and counting).
It all started last month when my mother got infected with covid followed closely by my dad and sister. They were initially doing fine under home isolation with proper medicines and care. I was hopeful that this is just temporary and will get better with passing time. The thought was short lived as my mother’s condition got critical (fluctuating O2 saturation) and we had to admit her to an ICU ward in a private hospital. I, being the only non-infected person, took the charge of admitting her into the hospital whilst taking care of my dad and sister at home. I had to shut down my recently started business and dedicate my time and energy saving my family from this deadly virus. Within 72 hours, the problems increased as my dad’s and sister’s condition also got critical and we had to admit them in the hospital as well.
Since past two weeks, all three of them are in hospital in the Intensive Care Unit and cannot breathe properly without the oxygen support. For initial 10 days, they were admitted in one of the private hospitals in Jabalpur where rent of bed per person per day was around 25k, making it 75k in total. Additionally, I had to pay for medicines, injections and other medical supplies. Even after paying close to 10 lacs their condition is not stabilising. In order to take a second opinion, I recently shifted them to a different private hospital. They have shown some improvement, but I do not really know how long and what else it will take for them to recover completely. All I know is, there is hope and they are continuing the fight with all their strength.
Hospital bills have been overbearing for me (a minimum of 1.2 lakhs per day) and I am facing tremendous problem in making my ends meet at the moment. Till now, I have exhausted all savings, and have to rely on support from my close family to pay these bills, however the bills are piling up day by day, which has forced me to take this desperate measure of asking support with the community at large. With a sliver of hope left within me and my family, I request you for any help, big or small that you can provide for the cause.
Thanking everyone in advance, take care and stay safe.
