    Children fighting cancer at Government Hospitals

    from Mumbai, Maharashtra


The rain clouds are upon us and they bring with them a plethora of diseases and infections. 

Children fighting cancer have very low immunity as a result of the multiple chemotherapy sessions, radiations and surgeries they undergo to fight cancer. 

Their weakened bodies may not be able to cope with the additional complications caused by rain-related diseases and infections such as dengue, cholera, cold & flu. It is imperative that these children are properly protected.

Cancer is an expensive disease to fight. Parents with low incomes get their children treated at government hospitals. Despite the relatively lower costs at these hospitals, the repeated chemo sessions and medical bills financially drain the family despite the many government grants and programs.

Parents end up cutting corners in certain items they consider non-critical. They end up buying low quality raincoats that fail to fully protect their weakened child without realizing the severity of the risk. However, one wonders what choice they really have when they are struggling to save each paisa to pay hospital bills.

Simply put, a good raincoat may be the difference between life and death for these children.

We have negotiated a very good rate for high quality raincoats directly from a manufacturer. We have set a target of protecting 600 children from low income families for which we need to raise Rs. 1,90,800 (pro forma Invoice attached below). Also, the raincoat quality approved by the pediatric division of a leading government hospital for cancer treatment.

All we now need to do now, is take this #1SmallStep to help these brave children in their fight against Cancer

You can take your #1SmallStep in one or all of the following ways:

  1. Make a contribution towards purchase of these raincoats
  2. Start your own support campaign on Milaap to amplify the fundraiser
  3. Share this fundraiser page on all your social profiles
We plan to distribute the raincoats as early as possible and hopefully no later that the second week of June. With your help we can do this!
