Dear Friends,

Here is the final update about the #SaveRachel Campaign:

It was an amazing campaign and we could collect the required funding from all of your help "within 24 hours" and get the needed help for the surgery of Rachel.

  • Baby Rachel has been discharged from the hospital & she is in good health. The happiness and smile on the face of daughter and mother is priceless.
  • Hospital bill came up to Rs.1,58,387 and Manipal Hospital has given a good Rs. 20,000 discount on the final bill.
  • Through crowd funding we have collected a total of Rs.1,69,699; comfortably exceeding the  surgery and medical expenses.
  • Luckson will hand over rest of the money to Mother Mayori for post surgery expenses, once he receives the USD withdrawal from Milaap platform which will take couple of days.
  • Mother and Daughter will fly back to their village in Manipur this week.
  • Manipur Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) has already paid for their expenses to fly back to Manipur. We have requested them to support Mother in settling down in Manipur, either with a suitable job or by using funds like Mudra, so she will be a role model for women like her. Empowering a woman is like empowering the whole village, right? CMO team has asked her to contact once she is back in Manipur. We will continue to be in touch with the CMO team to understand  all ends well.

Baby Rachel takes home the GOODWILL from all of you and I am sure she will grow up to be a symbol of humanity above all our differences.

In crowd funding campaign TRUST is the most important. Thanks again for trusting us and I hope we lived upto your expectations in terms of transparency and communication.

If you have any questions you can reach out to us on or message on twitter id: @girishalva. You can also send us a feedback about the campaign or if you are happy that your hard earned money is well spent on a great cause.

Let’s meet up again on a genuine real need, if anything arises, though we wish no one has to face this kind of helpless situation.

Thanks a lot!
