On the 8th of October, 32-year-old Govind met with a road accident on the streets of Mumbai. He was immediately rushed to Apollo hospital with severe head injuries.
Govind cannot lose the chance to recover just because we cannot afford the treatment
He has been in the hospital for a week now and is still in a very critical condition. He has been unconscious since he was admitted and is still in the ICU. On the 9th of October, he underwent head surgery but still continues to be in a critical condition on ventilator support.
Govind is a family man, with a wife and two children of 10 and 5 years. Since his accident, his wife Kamala's world has been turned upside down. Not only does she need to worry about saving her husband, but about her two young children and now an added pressure of paying the hospital bill.
Govind runs a small shoe store making around Rs. 4000 a month by mending and making shoes after paying the rent for the shop. His family do not have the funds to pay for his treatment and supportive care. His wife even considered moving to him to a more affordable hospital but with Govind in such a critical state, she was advised not to.
"If we cannot come up with money to pay our bill, we may not be able to continue the treatment. He is my husband. He is a father to our children. He is just 32! He has a long life ahead of him. We just need a chance for him to fight through and make it. Govind is lying on that bed unable to even breathe for himself. He has been there for us through everything. We want to be there for him and not let him down now."
Kamala is torn between saving her husband and paying the hospital bills. She needs our help to raise funds for her husband's treatment who requires it urgently.
"We never thought this day would come. Now, we are pleading the world for help. Please save my husband!"
