Save Pabitti Das From A Heart Diesease

She was married at 18. She had children immediately. She is being a wife, mother, daughter and daughter-in-law. Just when she is able to live for herself, the clock began ticking reminding her that the end is near.

27-year-old Pabitti Rani Das has a case that will cause anyone to do a double take. She ran out of breath on walking 50 yards and was diagnosed with serious heart disease requiring surgery at the earliest to replace a valve without which her time will run out.

It began 2 years ago, when this mother of two little girls (9-year-old and 2-year-old) went for a short walk and ended up clutching her chest in pain, gasping for breath. Initially, Pabitti was diagnosed with Dyspnea while consulting at a hospital in Bangladesh. As the list of symptoms grew, tests revealed that what she had was extremely serious. Pabitti is suffering from Rheumatic Heart Disease with severe mitral stenosis with PAH. Over time, she has become symptomatic and is finding trouble to go by her daily routine like taking a walk or even cooking.

“We tried treatment at a hospital in Bangladesh. I felt like my wife was being mistreated. Someone referred us to Manipal Hospitals in Bangalore. The doctors evaluated her and immediately told us that she was in grave danger. She needs a valve replacement NOW or we will lose her.”

Pabitti and Paban Das are from a small town in Bangladesh where Pabitti works as a fisherman earning Rs. 150-200/day. As it is not enough to run their household and put their girls through school, Pabitti is helping her husband working as a maid earning a meager income. The family had no options left when they chose to come to Bangalore for help on money borrowed from everyone they know.

“I brought her here 1 month and 10 days ago. We had to leave our daughters behind. Our visa is not valid for long and we are unable to extend it. So we have to go back if the treatment does not happen within a few days. We do not have the money they have quoted, and I have run out of options to source funds.”

Pabitti's surgery is estimated to cost Rs. 3,00,000, and the family is at loss to arrange for funds to save her. The clock is ticking before the valve gets damaged beyond repair, and Pabitti loses her life.

Your contribution can help this downtrodden family save this mother, this wife, this daughter, this daughter-in-law, and more importantly, a young woman. She can get live the rest of her life pain-free with the chance to live out her dreams.
