Story


It was a miracle of wisdom when Sarala had twins on October 3rd, 2016. A baby girl and a baby boy. 
Sarala is a house wife and her husband Shankar, switches between jobs. He is currently a painter. The family hail from Chennai and stay near Kelambakkam. They also have another daughter studying in class 7.


Soon after the twins were born, they started to develop complications while breathing and digesting milk

On October 4th , they were admitted to Kanchi Kamakoti Child Trust Hospital. The Baby boy has digestion problems and has had two surgeries till now. Each of the surgeries costed around one lakh.


The girl was born at 28 weeks of pregnancy and is 47 days old- the baby soon developed broncho pulmonary dysplasia. Because of which her lungs have not fully formed and has had breathing problems for quite some time. She is on an emergency respiratory support.

The baby boy is also premature weighing 1.4 kg at birth. He had an intestinal perforation and underwent surgery twice and is on ileostomy. He needs another six weeks of hospital stay.

The duration of treatment is 12 weeks out of which they have completed a month at the hospital. The cost of treatment, drugs and consumables expenses will approximately cost around Rs 800000. 
With a meager income of Rs 10,000 monthly, Shankar cannot afford to pay for his twins. With Sarala being a house wife and having an elder daughter already, makes it even more tougher for the parents. 

This is where we need your support. A small contribution can go a long way to help Shankar and Sarala see their twins survive and have a healthy life.
