Help Save Premlata's Life After a Major Bus Accident

Overview:
On 14 October, Premlata and her family of 6 (including her husband, 3 children and 1 old mother-in-law) were on their way to Madhubani, Bihar to celebrate Durga puja in  a bus. On the Agra-Lucknow highway, the bus met with a major accident and left the Premlata in a critical state, in which she broke her spine and is now paralysed. She is now in Sant Parmanand Hospital, Delhi, battling for her life. Please help us save her.

Who is Premlata Das?
  • Premlata is a loved mother, wife and a daughter of a close-knit family living in Bihar. 
  • She lives alone in Bihar with 3 very little kids and mother-in-law as her husband Surender Das is working as a driver in Delhi.

  • The family was traveling via a private tourist bus that met with an accident on the highway.
  • The accident left the family members injured and Premlata in a critical state. Premlata suffered a major spinal injury that has left her entire body paralyzed
  • Her husband will have to take care of all 3 children and Premlata and his old mother full-time, leaving him without a job. Additionally, the family is not getting nay support from the local government
What Doctors say:
  • Premlata is full-body paralysed as she has suffered a major spine injury (X-ray attached below). 
  • She will have to go through multiple surgeries for the next 6-8 months. Premlata will be completely bed-ridden for a minimum period of 1 year

How will the money be used?
  • Rs. 7,50,000 will be the doctor bill for spine surgery, physiotherapy and hospital stay
  • Rs. 1,00,000 will be the expense of managing the family expenses for the next 6 months as Surender will not be able to work and provide for his family.
