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.
