    Sahinur Islam

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka

Mainul Islam and Sabina Khatum were blessed with a baby boy in February this year. Baby Sahinur was diagnosed with Congenital Heart Disease and has been advised to undergo Open Heart Surgery at the earliest. Sabina did not notice any symptoms for 2 months. Only later the parents observed breathing difficulties and abnormal urination in him. 

Baby Sahinur was then taken to a local hospital in Kolkata who suspected him to have cardiac problem and hence was referred to a Cardiologist in Kolkata who confirmed the same and was advised surgery in a well equipped hospital. Hence through an agent they visited Manipal Hospitals in Bangalore and consulted Dr. Devananda in the month of May 2016. Baby Sahinur was advised surgery after 4 – 5 months as he cannot be operated at 2 months age.

Sahinur’s father Mainul is a Tuition Teacher and mother Sabina is a housewife. He gets income depending on the season. He takes tuition at his house and also goes to others house to take tuition. He earns around Rs. 8000 to 12000 per month. Mainul, Sabina and Mainul’s brother stay together and are dependent on the meagre income Mainul gets. Sahinur is their only child.

The approximate cost of the surgery is Rs.3,11,500 and could arrange for Rs. 150000 only. The doctor has advised surgery at the earliest.
