Father Travelled With His Dying Son From Odisha To B'lore To Save Him

A week back Imdad and Rahima had the toughest journey of their life. After they learned that their 6-month-old, Hamid’s liver was completely damaged, they had to carry their sick infant from Odisha to Bengaluru to save him. Imdad had to give up the last paisa he had to book a private car as their sick child was not in a position to travel almost 1216 km by public transport. Once they got into the car, they couldn’t even stop for a meal. Baby Hamid kept screaming in pain throughout and Rahima couldn’t even put him down for a minute. The parents prayed to God to keep him alive till they reached the hospital. Fortunately, they could get him admitted. But he needs an urgent liver transplant to survive and these poor parents have nothing left.




“We haven’t slept properly for the past 5 months. Whenever I put my little baby to sleep, he starts screaming in pain. He hasn’t even fed properly for all these months. He looks so weak and bony that it is a miracle that he's still breathing,” Rahima, baby Hamid’s mother.

Baby Hamid has been suffering since he was just 15-days-old, cannot survive for long without a liver transplant

When baby Hamid was just 15 days old, his stomach started swelling and his urine acquired a deep yellow colour. The healthy baby that these parents had brought home has now become an extremely sick child. For days Hamid would just lie on the bed and cry. After going to multiple doctors, the parents were shocked to hear that their baby’s liver is completely damaged.

Baby Hamid has biliary atresia, a condition in which the bile ducts are narrow or absent. This condition has led to his liver being completely damaged. Little Hamid needs a liver transplant in 3 days, without which his failed liver will kill him. 



“We got to know that my baby has this deadly disease when he was barely 1 month. He needed the liver transplant then only. While we had no money to get him admitted to the hospital, arranging the cost of the transplant is impossible for us. But now his condition has deteriorated so much. This transplant has to be done and it is our last hope. But how will I arrange Rs 20 lakhs in just 3 days? I am scared that our poverty will take my baby’s life.”-Imdad, father.

Despite selling their livelihood, the poor parents have nothing left to save their dying baby

Imdad is a vegetable seller in Soro, Odisha. He earns a meagre amount of Rs 6000 a month. To keep their baby alive till now, he had to sell everything he had - including the cattle the family owned and his wife's jewellery. Additionally, he has borrowed a lumpsum from friends and family as well. Including all these, they have spent Rs 2.5 lakhs so far. Now Imdad and Rahima find themselves helpless and full of fear for their baby's health.

“We have nothing to fight apart from our mental strength. All Imdad and I know is that we can’t let our baby die. That is the only thing that has kept us going. But now we need money. Hopes and prayers alone won’t work. Every day our baby goes without a transplant, he is getting worse and I am scared that I will lose him.”- Rahima

How you can help

6-month-old Hamid has biliary atresia due to which his liver has completely damaged. His father is a vegetable seller who has sold everything. The baby’s condition is deteriorating every day and he just has 3 days to get a life-saving liver transplant.

Dear Supporters,

We are extremely sorry about the date mentioned for the refund in the previous update.

We'd like to thank you for the wonderful support that you have shown towards Hameed. It means a lot to all of us. However, we have some news to share with you today.

Hameed needed a liver transplant for survival and the campaign was started to fund the same. However, Hameed's parents do not wish to go ahead with the liver transplant due to their personal reasons, and therefore, Hameed will not be undergoing the transplant.

At Milaap, we release funds raised only against utilization for the intended purpose, supported by treatment update from the doctor as well as bills and invoices given to us. Hence no funds have been transferred for this campaign and the parents are aware of this and have agreed to the same.

Since, the funds could not be utilized for the intended purpose. We would like to inform you that there is a patient named Thejashwini who needs treatment for end stage kidney and pancreas disease and needs to undergo a transplant on priority.

Here is the campaign link - https://milaap.org/fundraisers/support-tejashwini

We do understand that some of you may like a refund since the original purpose was not met. - 100% of your contribution will be refunded - please reply to us by 7th December 2018 ​ for process us the same.

Users who have made payments via UPI, PayTM, and direct Bank Transfers and have not claimed the payment need to visit the link: https://milaap.org/payments and claim the payment. Once you have claimed the payment, please write into feedback@milaap.org so that the refunds can be processed to their accounts.

We do find it challenging that occasionally patients or their parents withdraw their consent for treatment even after funds are raised, but we do respect their decision. We also owe our donors transparency in the process, and we leave it to their discretion on how their contribution should be used.

Our prayers and wishes are with Hameed and his family. Following is the letter attached from the treating doctor Dr Goutham Kumar. You may get in touch with them if you require any further information.

We want to thank you all for your support and generosity.
