Help 6-Year-Old Akhina To Undergo A Liver Transplant

6-Year-Old Akhina from Trivandrum is  diagnosed with Auto Immune Liver Cirrhosis. She is suffering from this disease from the age of 3. Her parents, Binil Kumar and Nishakumari, found out of their daughter's disease when Akhina fell ill with pneumonia. It was during one of the tests, that they knew that about her liver disease.

With An Income Of Just Rs.500, This Family Struggles To Afford The Treatment

Akhina's father is a painter and earns less than Rs.500 a day. There are days when there is no work and he is left without the money for the day. Nishakumari is a homemaker. With the help of their relatives and friends, Binil Kumar collected close to 2 lakhs for the transplant but they need over 10 lakhs for the transplant.

This 6-Year-Old Needs An Immediate Liver Transplant 

Akhina is undergoing treatment at Aster Medcity Hospital, Kochi. Doctors have recommended a liver transplant to save her. Her mother has come forward to donate a part of her liver to save little Akhina.

Akhina's disease is a unique and complex disease. She needs help immediately.

How You Can Help

Akhina can start the treatment procedures for the transplant if the family can arrange the funds. Her transplant is scheduled for the end of July and Akhina's family has few days left to take her to the hospital in Kochi.

Your contribution will bring Akhina one step to closer to getting her transplant and recovering from the disease that is affecting her.
